Math "Real World Project
Math and The "Real World
Within the estimating and proposal write-up many factors are taken into account.
mathematics is the main ingredient and I would like to show a few examples of that. Renovation is the process in which a house is fixed, not built from the ground up. For this project I called the United Construction company and spoke to a man named Billy. Billy is a carpenter for United Construction, a carpenter is someone who measures and cuts materials, then places them in position. There are three main steps to renovating a room or house. First you must start by measuring the area of the room, in this case a kitchen. Math is then used when checking the room to figure out what kinds and how much materials and fixtures will be needed to clean, rebuild, and or add to the room. Finally math is used to come up with an determined of how much all of the tools will cost, the estimate how much time the job will take, the cost of labor, and the cost of the overall job. Math is the main ingredient in the recipe to rebuilding a house, and without math you would not be able to build anything correctly, just by estimating.
