This PBL aligns with VA standards of learning and allows students to apply various topics within geometry and measurement to create their own city! The project focuses on students understanding:
The project is divided into phases to make it an interactive process: getting a permit to build through providing definitions of important vocabulary, determining the area/perimeter/volume of the buildings on their city plan, and then putting it all together. There is also a self-assessment page for the students to decide how they did on their personal projects.
