Cities are created by both private and public developers. During the process of land development, these agencies spend time carefully analyzing what type of development is possible due to zoning codes as well as the cost of the development. This process of analysis is dependent upon a financial document called a proforma. This session will walk attendees through creating a proforma via a case study. We will be able to see how slight changes to costs or areas can have dramatic impacts on the development of a project. The goal of this session is to show real world examples of how math and geometry play a large role in how the world around us gets shaped. Basic excel spreadsheets and case studies will be provided for use with students.
