"If you want to become a nurse you will need math. If you are interested in building homes you will need math. If you are interested in computers or gaming you will need math to develop programs," said Dr. Lonnie L. Howard in his introductory address. "You have a grand opportunity now to make magic happen in your life."
Students rotated around campus, participating in three sessions during the four-hour conference where they learned how mathematical concepts are used successfully in careers like firefighting, military aviation, marketing and home building.
