In this video, explore the mathematics involved in the work of a real estate appraiser as she calculates measurements, creates scaled drawings, and analyzes the mean and median prices of comparable homes to estimate the values of the homes she appraises. In the accompanying classroom activity, students discuss the mathematics embedded in the work of a real estate appraiser and use some of those mathematical formulas to measure different rooms in their own homes.

This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School collection.
