Do you have any resources that would help answer this question?  "WHEN AM I EVER GOING TO USE THIS?" I am looking for real world examples of people using math concepts that are taught in Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry. 

 

Thanks

I'd check out Everyday Math , look at Mathematics in Context.
Here is a link to an article of how geometry is used in NASCAR. http://sports.espn.go.com/rpm/nascar/icons/news/story?id=3377931 The article doesn't mention it, but they must use math to determine how many laps they can go on a tank of gas so they can determine the best times to make their pit stops. There are many professions such as this where math is used on a daily basis. I hope this helps a little.
You may want to look at http://thefutureschannel.com/ . . . .they have "real-world" videos related to science, math, technology, science and engineering.
Thanks for sharing!
