Project-based learning is successful because it engages students in rich content while providing a greater purpose for learning. In math courses at the Dayton Regional STEM School (DRSS), we have found that the more authentic the project, the more engaged the students are, and therefore the more deeply they learn to "do" mathematics. In this presentation, DRSS math teachers will share examples of authentic projects that have increased student interest and efficacy and therefore have improved student learning and engagement in math. Attendees will walk away with inspiration to expand the authenticity of projects in their classrooms.
