Exploring airport traffic, usage, hours of operation, and security statistics are all ways to model and bring relevance to math. Students soar while exploring the mathematics of aircraft: dimensions, cargo, fuel, and passenger capacity. Comparing two airports or aircraft would be valuable ways to extend their mathematical journey.

Considering circles in taxicab geometry helps students with Euclidean concepts.
Chalk Talk and Claim-Support-Question are two routines for developing students' ability to use multiple representations and encouraging classroom discussion.
