This link leads to a freely available on-line book, "Algebra Real-World (It's easier to understand than you think!)," written by Edward J. Farkas, Sc.D. This on-line book takes algebra out of the abstract and places it in a context that is readily understandable. In the high school curriculum, physics is the subject most relevant for providing this context.

http://www.ics.uci.edu/~eppstein/junkyard/
These pages have been provided by Professor David Eppstein of the Computer Science Department at the University of California in Irvine. They contain usenet clippings, web pointers, lecture notes, research excerpts, papers, abstracts, programs, problems, and other content related to discrete and computational geometry. Professor Eppstein writes that “while some of it is quite serious, I hope much of it is also entertaining

http://www.ics.uci.edu/~eppstein/geom.html
This is a second site provided by Professor Eppstein. It collects various areas in which ideas from discrete and computational geometry (meaning mainly low-dimensional Euclidean geometry) meet some real world applications. It contains brief descriptions of those applications and the geometric questions arising from them, as well as pointers to web pages on the applications themselves and on their geometric connections.
