**Travelling :**

** **When you travel, math comes along for the ride-from estimating the amount of fuel you will need to planning out a trip based on miles per hour and distance traveled.Calculating fuel usage is crucial to long distance travel. Without it, you may find yourself stuck without gas or on the road for much longer. You may also use math throughout the trip by paying for tolls, counting exit numbers, checking tire pressure, etc.

Long before GPS and Google Maps, people used atlases, paper road maps, road signs, or verbal directions to navigate throughout the country’s highways and byways. If you’re a teacher, you can show students how to use their math skills for reading maps.
