We are currently working on plotting polygons on a grid coordinate plane.  If it's on a grid coordinate plane you can find the dimensions without a measuring tool sometimes.

We are making geo-model homes.  Here are the Geo-Model


1. Have a working model.  Watch the 3 d paper home video for directions.

2.  Have a list of area and perimeter measurements to accompany your model.

   a.  You need 10 perimeter measurements.  Tell what the measurement is for (example:  wood trim around the bedroom door) and then tell what the measurement is making sure to LABEL your work.  Finally, EXPLAIN how you found the answer.

       i.  you need 5 to be the perimeter of a complex or interesting shape.

      ii.  The rest are your choice perimeter measurement.

     b.  The AREA of at least 10 things in your home.  (example:  the floor space in the bathroom--how many tiles are needed.)  Make sure to tell how you found the answer AND LABEL the answer correctly.  

       i.  5 items need to be complex shapes, and 2 of those need to have a triangle involved in some way.

      ii.  The rest are your choice.

You can find more.

You can add style and design choices.

Be creative and have fun!!

The Geo-Models are due Friday, November 16.
