Geometry In Construction

Geometry in Construction kids become "stair masters".  Our students are using the slope formula and properties of indirect measurement to determine the slope of the stairs and ramps outside the CCA building to verify that they comply with code.

Here our Geometry in Construction students are using linear equations to model and predict the "beam strength" of spaghetti noodles.

  

Geometry in Construction students are attempting to use an ancient building tool (rope with evenly spaced knots) to prove the Pythagorean Theorem and create a right triangle.

 

Geometry in Construction students go on a treasure hunt.  Armed with yard sticks, protractors and their knowledge of right triangle trigonometry, they had to use a school map to find clues  and make their way to the treasure!
