You can use points of concurrency in triangles for many jobs.  One job is archaeology.  An archaeologist’s job has a lot to do with culture, and the way people used to live.  Archaeologists dig up ancient artifacts, many of which are broken.  To piece these back together perfectly, they can use points of concurrency.  When they use points of concurrency, they find the centers, (centroid, orthocenter, etc.) take each piece, and try to figure out exactly where it belongs in the broken object.  This is just one of the many different jobs that you can use with points of concurrency.

    This shocked me. You never think of all the people who really do need to use geometry. When I think of careers that use geometry I think of constuction workers. Good example!

    This is another different job that uses geometry. It’s interesting how many people use it day to day.

    I never thought archaelolologists used geometry, but now that you think about it, it makes sense.
