Mathematics is not an isolated subject area.  In fact, if you think of any subject long enough you will think of a math concept that shows up somewhere, whether it be history, political science, English, etc.  Sometimes, we know how to use the concept in a math class but have difficulty connecting these concepts to our other courses.  To help you make the connections between math and particular subject areas, we have created PowerPoint presentations illustrating these connections with accompanying practice problems and solutions.  Simply click on the links below to view the materials. 

Have another topic that you are having difficulty making the connection?  Email us at and we will develop additional materials for you.
