Using the second floor of a residential construction site as his classroom, Justin Fantasia, SAGA Construction Manager, introduced the students to the methods of rafter layout for the roof of a home. In truth, this introduction was more of a refresher course because the methods and algorithms used to measure the rafter dimensions are the same ones students have learned in their mathematics curriculum; giving them an opportunity to apply their classroom education in a first-hand manner.

With the students now versed in roof design and measurement methods, they will have the opportunity to display their knowledge as the project move into the next stage: roof construction.
