Have you every thought about what your dream house would look like? Would you want a large, spacious bedroom, or a movie theater, or even an indoor swimming pool? Well now you have the chance to design your dream house! In this class, we will use various math skills to draw the blueprint/find the dimensions of your house (and all it’s rooms), the cost to build it, design, and furnish it! During class, we will work both as a group and individually to complete your design. Week 1:...
Students will learn how many mathematical operations and concepts are used in a real world scenario. They will apply their knowledge of adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing whole numbers, fractions, and decimals as well as measurement and geometry to complete a project based learning activity.
Students may need to finish calculations/drawings after class, but it is not required to do so. This may take approximately 30 minutes-1 hour each week.
Paper (I will attach graph paper that can be printed) Pencil (colored pencils, markers, crayons- optional) Ruler Calculator (can use on computer)
Students will be informally assessed during sessions (reviewing calculations) and may submit their final project for feedback.
35 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Research may be needed to find the accurate cost of materials and objects.
