Content standards :

Content standards Measurement and Geometry 2.0 Students compute the perimeter, area, and volume of common geometric objects and use the results to find measures of less common objects. They know how perimeter, area, and volume are affected by changes of scale: 2.1 Use formulas routinely for finding the perimeter and area of basic two-dimensional figures and the surface area and volume of basic three-dimensional figures, including rectangles, parallelograms, trapezoids, squares, triangles, circles, prisms, and cylinders. 2.2 Estimate and compute the area of more complex or irregular two- and three-dimensional figures by breaking the figures down into more basic geometric objects. 2.3 Compute the length of the perimeter, the surface area of the faces, and the volume of a three-dimensional object built from rectangular solids. Understand that when the lengths of all dimensions are multiplied by a scale factor, the surface area is multiplied by the square of the scale factor and the volume is multiplied by the cube of the scale factor. 2.4 Relate the changes in measurement with a change of scale to the units used (e.g., square inches, cubic feet) and to conversions between units (1 square foot = 144 square inches or [1 ft2 ] = [144 in2 ], 1 cubic inch is approximately 16.38 cubic centimeters or [1 in3 ] = [16.38 cm3 ]).

Big ideas/ unit goals and 21st century skills:

Big ideas/ unit goals and 21 st century skills Big Ideas/Unit Goals Students will learn to apply concepts and formulas of geometry and measurement to real life applications. These concepts include; perimeter, area, surface area, volume, and changes of scale. Students will model a floor plan of an ideal home of theirs and add objects as well. This will allow them to work with 2D and 3D items. The goal for this unit is to allow students to connect the ideas of geometry and measurements. 21 st Century Skills Life and Career Skills: Learning to create a floor plan for a home can be the first step for students to see that geometry can be applied to real life applications and that it can be an important skill for a career such as architecture. Creativity: Students will use their own creativity to design their floor plans from scratch. I will also be requiring a few specific components that will allow them to think outside the box. Critical Thinking: Students will need to take into considerations if all of the measurements of their floor plan can tie in together perfectly. Students will be revising their floor plans and be adding new components. By doing this, students will be critically thinking.

Student learning objectives and assessments :

Student learning objectives and assessments Objective The objective of this project is to model your ideal home by creating a floor plan. Students will apply their knowledge of computing area and perimeter to design the dimensions of their space. They will also apply their knowledge of surface area and volume to compute the dimensions of the 3D objects they will chose. Students will apply the conversion of units to convert different types of measurements. Assessment Entry level: Understand how to compute area, perimeter, volume, and surface area of 2D and 3D objects by using different formulas. Also, how to compute different scales of measurements. Formative: Students will work with different partners to revise their floor plans and make sure their dimensions and measurements are correct. Also, they will share their ideas and suggest any changes with their partners. Summative: Students will present their “Ideal Home” and share what they have learned.

learning activities:

learning activities Learning Activity #1 Students will design a floor plan with at least eight different rooms/sections. They will identify the area, perimeter, and angles of every section. Students will learn how to structure their homes where every dimensions fits perfectly. On several sheets of graphing paper, students will create their outlines. They will also learn to convert measures of units such as; inches to feet. This activity will allow students to connect geometry and measurements of 2D objects. Learning Activity #2 A home would not be complete if there weren’t items inside. Students will need to incorporate 15 items into their home. For these 15 items, students will compute the surface area and volumes. These items will need to fit perfectly inside the floor plan they have designed. The measurements of these items will need to be in real life form. This activity will allow students to use geometry and measurements for 3D objects.

Why I chose this topic?:

Why I chose this topic? I chose this topic because there are many different components of geometry and measurements. Throughout this project students will tie in together these concepts and see how they relate to each other. Not only will students be working with 2D objects, but also with 3D objects. I want students to learn how Geometry can be applied to real life applications. By designing their own homes, students will learn how important Geometry is when it comes to structures and items as well. Students will enhance their learning of computing area, perimeter, volumes, and many more while still having fun. This project will allow students to be creative, collaborate with other students, use critical thinking, and learn life skills.
