This product is an extremely engaging activity that allows students to connect area of composite figures to real-life situations. Students will be given a blueprint of a house and will be calculating the cost of hardwood floors, carpet, tile, etc. Every question requires students to first calculate the area of a composite figure. They then use their answer to calculate the cost of materials. This is a great activity to use whole group, partners, or in small groups.
