Students plan their own city, using the following math concepts:
• Graphing equations
• Parallel and perpendicular lines
• Systems of linear equations
• Partitioning a line segment in a given ratio
Students follow the project instructions, locating landmarks and creating parallel and perpendicular streets. Each city will have some features in common, but each one will turn out unique to the student or group that created it!
Provided is a PowerPoint to introduce students to city grids.
An answer guide and rubric are also included. (Please note, some answers will vary, and cities will turn out differently.)
This version of "Plan a City" is intended for high school geometry. Check out the algebra version, which focuses more on systems of equations instead of geometry topics if it meets your needs!
