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.

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. More…
