In this article, I present a selection of problem types, with examples, that have been used with some success to motivate the topics in a quantitative literacy class so that learners may begin doing mathematics without period of discussion beforehand. In their original use, the setting for these problems is a small class at a large liberal arts college, but I hope that the work described within will still have some value for teachers of high school students, especially in classes where many learners struggle to appreciate mathematics.
