Here is a PowerPoint lesson that covers several Common Core Standards. It is a real-world activity which is fun, interactive, and creative in solving mathematical problems. Using the handouts, students will be actively involved in finding area of rectangles and triangles. In addition,they will solve proportions to determine actual measurements of a house.Finally they will calculate the amount of paint and shingles needed for the project.
Note: To advance the presentation, I use a wireless mouse. This allows you to have the freedom to walk about the classroom during the presentation.
Common Core Standards are: 6.G.A.1 and 6.G.A.3 and 7.G.B.6
