6th grade GMS students are engaging in life skills using mathematics by creating their “Dream House”. The students have to design their house while calculating area/perimeter for each room or area that they add to their house plan. They also have to determine how many square feet the rooms & total house would be. (Not drawn to scale.) The students are loving the opportunity to design their floor plan to include any type of room. Several students have included basketball courts, gaming rooms etc. We love that our students get the opportunity to be creative & have fun while being fully engaged in learning!
