This project will show students how they can get a hole in one when playing miniature golf by using geometry!
First, students explore drawing their own hole-in-one paths on some given miniature golf holes by bouncing the ball off of one, two, or three walls.
Then, students are presented with a project in which they have to build a model of a miniature golf hole. The students must show paths for how they could get a hole-in-one by bouncing the ball off one, two, or three walls. In addition, students can practice their writing skills by creating an advertisement for their miniature golf hole.
A rubric for this project is included.
Several pictures of student work are provided as examples.
Geometer's Sketchpad can be incorporated into this project.
Possible answers are included in this project.
