Much of the work that I do to create content like math games, creative math activities, and modern application problems is unsupported. I teach as an adjunct and do not receive a full-time salary from any of my endeavors. Graphs In The World (GITW) is also a project unsupported by any kind of grant or salary. If you regularly use these materials, and it saves you time, consider donating a small amount per month to keep these resources coming.
