Tenth grade students at Codman Academy Charter Public Schools use mathematical concepts and analysis to answer the question: Are the staircases in the city of Boston safe?

As part of this expeditions, students meet with building inspectors and architects, and work with property owners to ensure that their staircases are safe. Students also present their findings to parents and community members.
