I want math to be realistic and meaningful

realistic: I take this from Flickr from CU-Boulder and Freudenthal Institute US hosted the Fifth Realistic Mathematics Education conference, or RME5, in September of 2015. 

Realistic: imaginable, realizable, not just “real-world”

Meaningful: significant, relevant, important, consequential, telling, material, valid, worthwhile

(antonyms: inconsequential)

1. having a serious, important, or useful quality or purpose.

“making our lives rich and meaningful”  “a meaningful relationship”

2. communicating something that is not directly expressed.

“meaningful glances and repressed passion”.  “a meaningful glance”
