This session can either be delivered as a single or double lesson. It focuses on a practical classroom-measuring activity, facilitated by an industry professional. The aim is to get students thinking about how their maths learning can and will be relevant to future career options. The career in focus is that of Quantity Surveying, and the activity incorporates common maths that a Quantity Surveyor uses while at work—most commonly to do with calculating areas and assessing the cost of a project.
