Description

Take your Dream House project and ramp it up a notch with this 21st Century Math Project! A staple experience of math classrooms across the country, this take on the Dream House project focuses on Area, Perimeter and Scale skills. Students are scaffolded conceptually and mathematically by the time they are asked to design their own Dream House!

In this product you will receive a 48 page PDF which includes: 3 different assignments, 1 project, and charts and necessary attachments. ***THIS PRODUCT HAS BEEN UPDATED WITH A GOOGLE SLIDES INTERACTIVE VERSION INCLUDED. REDOWNLOAD IF YOU HAVE IT ALREADY***

****THIS FILE NOW CONTAINS A METRIC VERSION****

- In “Apartment Renovation" students will familiarize themselves with architectural symbols, scale, area and perimeter calculations.

- In “Design a Kitchen” students will measure scale drawings and be introduced to some simpler building codes. They will conclude by drawing their own scale kitchen that meets code.

- In “New Home Builder” students will be asked to appraise the value of houses based on the square footage of their blueprints. They will use Nearby Home Sales to estimate the new home's worth!

- In "Dream House" students will put their practice to use by designing their own dream house. A number of handout resources make this more convenient.

You can download the preview to see pretty much everything!

Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Apply geometric methods to solve design problems (e.g., designing an object or structure to satisfy physical constraints or minimize cost; working with typographic grid systems based on ratios).
Use geometric shapes, their measures, and their properties to describe objects (e.g., modeling a tree trunk or a human torso as a cylinder).
Identify the shapes of two-dimensional cross-sections of three-dimensional objects, and identify three-dimensional objects generated by rotations of two-dimensional objects.
Use proportional relationships to solve multistep ratio and percent problems. Examples: simple interest, tax, markups and markdowns, gratuities and commissions, fees, percent increase and decrease, percent error.
Use ratio reasoning to convert measurement units; manipulate and transform units appropriately when multiplying or dividing quantities.
