Math in the Real World 2013

Go Bears!  Karen Murphy, CFO for the Chicago Bears came to WJHS on Thursday, December 5th to present to the 7th and 8th grade students.  She talked about different ways she uses math to set budgets, record player statistics, set pricing and develop new revenue sources.  She illustrated with spread sheets and pie charts how cool it is to use math to be actively part of the Chicago Bears.  Along with the financial side of her job responsibilities with the organization, come some added bonuses which include sky box seats and the ability to fly with the team to away games! Karen’s presentation was a great example, even to the Packer fans in the audience, that math can be fun in the real world.
