AIM: How can we apply our geometrical understanding to solve a real-life problem?
HW: Continue research and bring in additional information pertaining to your project (typed, printed and highlighted, or hand written)
Do Now: Please take out your HW to be quickly checked, then take out your geometry reference sheet.
Classwork: Please see the message sent out on Jupitergrades:
Students and Parents:Tomorrow we will begin an exciting project that takes geometrical skills from class and practically applies them in a real-world context. Students will be working in small groups over the next week and a half to research, design, build, and write. The culmination of the project will take place in the form of a presentation in which students pitch their product to a company’s “executive board.” Competition is certainly alive in math class! Period 2 will be presenting during our student-led conferences next Thursday, May 19th after school.
Students will be responsible for overnight assignments pertaining to the project, however the majority of the work will be produced in class. For this reason, it is extremely important to maintain solid attendance so everyone can be contributing members to their groups.
