Alex Larzelere came and spoke to the Math Honor Society members on Nov. 30 about how to use math to make a difference.

Larzelere was a former officer in the U.S. Coast Guard and a former employee for the Department of Energy.

He taught different skills to the attendees surrounding how to use math in the real world, and he lectured them about his own standards.

“A good performance metric is meaningful, sensitive, repeatable and attributable,” Larzelere said.

He concluded his presentation with some words of wisdom. This allowed the members of the Math Honors Society to see how they can use their skills in the future.

“Get out there and do great things with the math you are learning,” Larzelere said.
