The purpose of this task is to give students an opportunity to show their understanding of geometry vocabulary, equations and simple calculations. Students create a unique map that contains specific geometric shapes, spaces, and directions. Vocabulary includes: acute, area, circumference, compass rose, diameter, equilateral triangle, intersecting, isosceles triangle, line segment, obtuse, parallel, perimeter, perpendicular, prism, radius, ray, scalene triangle, and straight edge.
Each student becomes the architect of his/her own imagination. Students will imagine an amusement park, a space station, or their own neighborhood. Students include the mandatory angles, lines and shapes that not only encourage ingenuity by also demonstrate an understanding of geometric concepts. Student materials include: a blank piece of paper, straight edge, compass, and colored pencils or markers.
