Local General Contractor Visits Elementary School to Give Area and Perimeter Real-Life Meaning



On Friday, Jan. 31, Mrs. Benson’s 3rd grade class at Roger Sherman Elementary School of Meriden had a very special visit from Bencar Building Systems LLC. Students have been talking all about measurement, area, and perimeter in math and Bencar came in to talk about how they use all of those things every day!

The students got to see before and after pictures of multiple remodels as well as real life examples of blueprints. Then, the students were able to create blueprints of their very own dream houses using area and perimeter to find the “square footage.” This visit gave a great real life meaning to what the students have been learning as well as reasons why math is imperative to every day life.
