For your Common Core and STEM curriculum.
Grades 9-12. Bring project-based learning to help students understand geometry in their daily lives. Covering topics such as measurement, shape visualization, and graph theory, the projects range from seeing the geometry in fashion design, to using coordinate systems to investigate a crime scene, to building unconventional containers for new products. Includes 10 separate projects (each taking 10-12 hours), implementation suggestions, and answer keys. 214 pages.

6.RP.1 Understand the concept of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities. For example,
The ratio of wings to beaks in the bird house at the zoo was 2:1, because for every 2 wings there was 1 beak.
For every vote candidate A received, candidate C received nearly three votes.
6.RP.3a Make tables of equivalent ratios relating quantities with whole-number measurements, find missing values in the tables, and plot the pairs of values on the coordinate plane. Use tables to compare ratios.
6.RP.3b Solve unit rate problems including those involving unit pricing and constant speed. For example, if it took 7 hours to mow 4 lawns, then at that rate, how many lawns could be mowed in 35 hours? At what rate were lawns being mowed?
6.RP.3c Find a percent of a quantity as a rate per 100 (e.g., 30% of a quantity means 30/100 times the quantity), solve problems involving finding the whole, given a part and the percent.
6.RP.3d Use ratio reasoning to convert measurement units, manipulate and transform units appropriately when multiplying or dividing quantities.
6.G.1 Find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes, apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
6.G.4 Represent three-dimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles, and use the nets to find the surface area of these figures. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
7.G.1 Solve problems involving scale drawings of geometric figures, including computing actual lengths and areas from a scale drawing and reproducing a scale drawing at a different scale.
7.G.2 Draw (freehand, with ruler and protractor, and with technology) geometric shapes with given conditions. Focus on constructing triangles from three measures of angles or sides, noticing when the conditions determine a unique triangle, more than one triangle, or no triangle.
7.G.6 Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, volume and surface area of two- and three-dimensional objects composed of triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, cubes, and right prisms.
8.G.3 Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.
8.G.6 Explain a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse.
8.G.8 Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between two points in a coordinate system.
8.G.9 Know the formulas for the volumes of cones, cylinders, and spheres and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems.
HSG.SRT.6 Understand that by similarity, side ratios in right triangles are properties of the angles in the triangle, leading to definitions of trigonometric ratios for acute angles.
HSG.GMD.3 Use volume formulas for cylinders, pyramids, cones, and spheres to solve problems.
HSG.MG.1 Use geometric shapes, their measures, and their properties to describe objects (e.g., modeling a tree trunk or a human torso as a cylinder).
HSG.MG.3 Apply geometric methods to solve design problems (e.g., designing an object or structure to satisfy physical constraints or minimize cost, working with typographic grid systems based on ratios).
