THE HOUSE PROJECT is a semester long summative project that encompasses the majority of Common Core Math 1 (Algebra 1) Standards. Topics covered during this project include: polynomials, literal equations, statistics, the midpoint and distance formulas, scale drawings, linear/exponential/ and quadratic functions, line of best fit/correlation coefficient, parallel and perpendicular lines, linear programming, volume, area and perimeter, domain and range, radicals, systems of equations, equivalency, translating coordinates on the coordinate plane, unit conversions, percentages, embedded formulas, comparing functions and more.
This real life 34 question project promotes critical thinking and making mathematical connections.
Included in the zip file folder you will find:
+PDF file that contains a descriptive summary of the project, a list of non-academic (real-world) vocabulary that is included in the questions, the blue print of the house, the project itself, the solutions, a scanned copy of a Geometer’s Sketchpad file of the house, rubrics and expectations.
+Microsoft Word Documents of everything listed above except for solutions and Geometer’s Sketchpad file.
+Geometer’s Sketchpad file so that you can see the house drawing in color and zoom in and out as needed.
