Students enjoyed local law enforcement making the material from Senior Math Finance come to life yesterday, March 21, at Fannin County High School. State trooper Andrew Phillips shared a power point and discussed how traffic reconstruction officers use mathematics to verify speeds, skidding distances and other relevant facts needed to reconstruct traffic accidents. The students then went to the visitors parking lot behind the football stadium to experience a reenactment of an emergency braking situation. They then used some of the formulas discussed in the classroom to determine the speed of the vehicle upon braking.
