Your students could be “Fashionistas”, seeing the geometry in fashion design. Or perhaps they’re “At the Scene of the Crime”, using coordinate systems to investigate a crime scene. Or they could be “Thinking Outside the Box”, building unconventional containers for new products.
Most important, they’re using project-based learning to understand geometry in their
daily lives. Covering topics such as measurement, shape visualization, and graph theory,
these 10 projects are a real-world approach that incorporates important geometry skills.
- Correlated to the Common Core State Standards
- 10 separate projects, from “Project Putt-Putt” to “Superhero Challenge”
- 10–12 hours per project (prep, homework, and activities)
- Includes implementation suggestions and answer keys
