Mrs. Doyle’s math 7A classes have their first project of the trimester this week. The project is on the surface areas of pyramids and exploring the process of creating umbrellas. It will be due March 30 and will be a week’s worth of homework points, around 40-50.
This project is a collaborative project with 2-4 people per group, although, they will have the ability to discuss with the whole class. A physical model will be made by using the provided scale using construction paper, scissors, and glue. The project will be turned into Mrs. Doyle through Google Classroom.
Students will need to know how to find surface areas, how umbrellas are made, and how the fabric is cut. They are expected to know how to problem solve with real-world applications, and how to collaborate in person and digitally.
Students had one day to work on it in class, and the rest is done outside of class. However, Mrs. Doyle will be in her class before school if students need a meeting place.
When Mrs. Doyle was asked how she wanted the students to present it, and how she was going to be grading it, she stated, “We may present a few a day, or I may post to Google Classroom for students to view.” She acknowledges that “answers may vary. It will be graded on their ability to justify work and answers.”
Good luck Math 7A students! Do well!
