Honors Geometry students spent the latter part of the winter term working through a unit on similarity. As an extension of this unit, they worked through a project on 2-dimensional scaled floor plans and 3-dimensional models during one of the two experimental schedule weeks. As pairs, students were assigned to find the actual measures of one of the floors of the Science Building or the Library. Each student was then charged with drawing a to-scale floor plan of the area, complete with accurate measures. To conclude the unit, we moved to the computer lab and built 3-D models to be printed with the 3-D printer.
