Guest Speaker Demonstrates Skills Needed to Create House Plans

Jesse Warman was the guest speaker for Onekama Middle School math classes. He demonstrated his role as a draftsman for the office of Caleb P. Luibrand Architect, PC.

Michele Warman, math teacher at Onekama Middle School, assisted Jesse as he showed the classes a set of floor plans and demonstrated how drafting by hand generates blue prints.

Jesse passed out several adjustable triangles and demonstrated how to use them to make a scale drawing of a simple floor plan. Students participated in an exercise to design a simple beam with uniform load. Groups worked together to design a beam and see how math is applied in the real world. Jesse helped students to examine what is involved in creating a home and how important accurate math calculations are to be successful as an architect.
