        Real-Life Math | Dentist

        In this video, a dentist explains the importance of understanding mathematics in his profession. He uses math for converting numbers, calculating doses of anesthetics, measuring teeth for root canals, and maintaining a budget. In the accompanying activity, learners will practice their own metric conversions and data analysis as they measure their heights and arm spans in order to find appropriately sized bicycles.
