EY Parent, Brody Anderson, was a guest speaker and teacher in our 4th grade math class today. He shared how he uses math skills such as area and perimeter in his swimming pool construction business, Anderson Poolworks. Students had the opportunity to calculate the area and perimeter of different swimming pool designs including one of their own. Our kids were fascinated and had many questions involving how math is used in pool construction. Thanks, Mr. Anderson, for taking time to meet with us today.
