With this Dream Bedroom project students will apply their math skills to design their own dream bedroom. This is the perfect project for kids to apply math skills to a real world situation and incorporate art and design into your math class.
Your students will:
*learn about scale factor and apply it to drawing a floor plan
*learn how to draw blue print symbols to identify where they will put their door and window(s)
*use furniture dimensions to calculate the area and perimeter of their furniture
*use furniture dimensions to draw their furniture to scale on their floor plan
*calculate the area of their bedroom floor and the surface area of their bedroom walls and use this information to make decisions about flooring and wall treatments
*draw a final floor plan to show where all of their furniture will be in their room
