Geometry project

Any opportunity I have to give students to compile, analyze, synthesize, and create with activities, I jump at it!  I notice that my students are so accustomed to skill based math work, that they really struggle when I ask them to think outside the box.  This project incorporated multiple geometry skills that we reviewed during 1st quarter.  Students had to create a vacation place with geometry specifics that included finding perimeters, area, angle measures, parallel and perpendicular lines.  Here's what they came up with...











Here is a project that I've used in the past that also incorporates geometry.  In this activity, students use a full page of graph paper.  They use all 4 quadrants and demonstrate understanding of translations, rotation, reflection, dilation, reduction, and labeling coordinate points.

I have something, but I got it from a friend of a friend. And have no way of asking if I could share. I don't mind sending it to specific emails, but ask that you respect the work of the original author and not post it online.

Hello Readers! I just sent out a mass email to you with the project attached. If you do not receive it, please drop me a line at jenalphillips@gmail.com and I will get you a copy to your email ASAP. I have had a few addresses bounce claiming they cannot deliver to the account probably because of settings your district has in place. Thanks for your interest and good luck!
