This project I use at the beginning of the year to get kids back into the swing of things. Having said that, the concepts in this packet are HARD and may be more appropriate as a culminating project. Students are asked to solve a wide variety of math problems surrounding a hand-drawn map. Topics: Percentages, Fractions, Ratios, Fractions, Geometry. Ultimately, students create their own maps with contour lines, and just enough information included to be able to ask math problems on a topic of their choice.
