Honors Geometry students spent the the first part of the spring term working through a unit on Similarity. As an extension of this unit, they recently worked through a project on 2-dimensional scaled floor plans and 3-dimensional models. In groups, students were assigned to find the actual measures of one of the sections of the Science or School Building. 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 using SketchUp to be printed with the 3-D printer.
