What kinds of online resources has anyone found that presents algebra in real world applications? I would be interested in interactive websites, demonstrations of algebra in the workplace, anything to get students to connect to why algebra is important to learn for life after high school.

The Futures Channel (http://www.thefutureschannel.com/) is a great resource!! It has a small video clip and pdf worksheets that go with the video to help the students understand the real world problems. Geometry, Algebra, and Measurement are just some of the areas in mathematics that are covered. The problems are described by an actual field expert in the movie.
