This project pairs students in the task of winning a Design Star Challenge where they must design a ranch style home and calculate costs associated with their design using actual costs from a home improvement store. Students first must choose their ranch style home from a list of blue prints and then work their design. The preview gives the directions. The rubric is in the final purchase to go along with the directions. Working with area, perimeter, and money in this real world problem allows the students choice in their design and can be made into a competition with actual judges involved.
