This is a visual project for High School Geometry in which students locate items in "our world", either manmade or in nature that represent geometric terms we are studying or have studied.
The project directs students to
1) define each word and draw the mathematical representation of the word on a "terms page" and then
2) create a visual representation of their choosing (flipbook, scrapbook, powerpoint, prezi, webpage, etc) to present their project.
They have a list of terms they have to represent and they are directed to find 2 representations of each term.
This purchase includes a zip file that contains the detailed project directions, the terms page (a table with the terms listed, a place for writing/typing definitions, and a place for drawing in the mathematical picture), and the rubric.
After opening the zip file, all included files are MS Word files so that you can edit the terms and directions to best fit your class.
This makes a great project for anytime in the year but I like to use it either during the first of the year to introduce Geometry, or the last part of the year after state testing as a "wrap up" to the year.
Recommendation: give approximately 2 weeks for the project if doing it completely out of class; or less time if doing it in class. Depends on your student population
