- Research floor plans and brainstorm new ideas. Teams look at examples of current floor plans and discuss how these designs might change over next 50 years.
- Prepare a short quiz on vocabulary and key geometric concepts for Quiz Day. You can use Khan Academy assessment on parallel and perpendicular lines.
Tips and Tools
Useor . Both are tools for use with geometry.
Use links to floor plan sites likeor .
Tip: Since floor plans are designed for current living, teams must do creative thinking to decide how the plans will change over time.
Have students enter their observations (what they learned, what they need to learn, etc) in their.
