Now This is "Real World"!

This question written by Patrick Honner is in the April 27th issue of The Learning Network ,which is part of the New York Times Education section. 

We often talk about "Real World" problems in math. I love this question because it's a perfect example of a Real World problem that is current and can have a huge impact on people's lives!  By bringing Current Events into a Math discussion, you're also making math relevant.
