Product Description
In this project, students learn how multiplying dimensions affects the area of a product. They chose a small 2-dimensional item they want to enlarge for their model. (Could be easily modified to include options for 3-dimensional items.) They then complete the math packet in class measuring and calculating their dimensions and area their model will need to have, and the plan of how they will create their model to scale. Once their packet is complete, they are ready to start the creation of their enlarged model. They complete this work at home for homework over the next two weeks. They are so excited to bring them completed on due date.
