Lakeway City Engineer Paul Duncan and other professionals shared their experiences using math for their jobs with Lake Travis Elementary fourth-graders on Jan. 23.
Christine Carroll’s students swarmed around his table when Duncan unrolled building plans for the elementary. Carroll’s class was studying a unit called “Math Around Town” in which they researched occupations that heavily involve math.
Students asked the professionals what they do during a typical day, what services they provide, how they use math on the job, what math tools they use on the job, and several questions of their own.
