    This website is INCREDIBLE for engaging, real-world math tasks that highlight critical standards:

    Additionally, I'm not sure how familiar you are with Jo Boaler's work, but the woman is incredible and has transformed my teaching. She also has many high floor/low ceiling tasks at the following site:

    I would also consider 3-act-math tasks as well. There are several sources of them https://tapintoteenminds.com/3act-math/ is one I use often. I would also look for Desmos activities as many of them will be engaging for students as well.

    I have some trainings on art and math that work with high school math. I think using art at that level is especially powerful because it helps with real world and personal connections which is sometimes a difficult thing to do with math. Also, the Institute for Arts Integration and STEAM might have some high school stuff too.
