PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students plan their own city on a Cartesian plane, combining math skills and creativity. Students work in groups using graphing skills to create a city plan.

Some landmarks and roads are already established in the city. Students will graph these items, and then add their own.
Students will get practice with the following topics:
• Graphing equations
• Parallel and perpendicular lines
• Systems of linear equations

Each city will have some features in common, but each one will turn out unique to the group that created it!


In this download, you will receive a PDF of the two-page student handout, which guides groups through the activity. They will create their city on graph paper following the instructions given. They will answers questions and make decisions about their city on the handout.

Also provided is a powerpoint to introduce students to city grids. Many students do not realize that cities often have streets laid out in a grid pattern. In the powerpoint, students will try to identify cities from a map.
