This is an enrichment project that challenges students to choose their dream house plans and figure the cost to build it - including the land, flooring, paint and furnishings. There is flexibility in the number of rooms you would like your students to "purchase" flooring, paint, and furnishings for. Examples on how to figure the cost of flooring and paint is provided, as well as a student work packet. The only addition you will need to make to this project is house plans. I have a few house plan books that I allow the students to choose from, but you could also find plans on-line. This is a great real world project that incorporates many aspects of math. The bonus is the students really enjoy it!!!
