**Students can become architects in their mathematics classrooms. **Math-Kitecture
has a number of activities, including "Floor Plan your Classroom,"
which offer engaging ways for students to study mathematics by doing real-life
architecture. Students learn estimation, measuring skills, proportion, and
ratios by hand-drafting a floor plan of their classroom to scale. They then
use existing classroom software to create a computer-aided design (CAD)
version. All submitted student work can be displayed in the online
gallery. |
