Standard(s) Taught

All the Standards will be utilized for The Geometrocity Project

The objective of this project is for students to work in groups to use geometry terms and skills in order to create their own city. Students are given requirements for terms that must be included, as well as what kinds of buildings and things must be present inside of their cities. Students are able to create different city maps such as downtown, suburbs, city hall, and industrial park

This Project Based Learning activity focuses on the real-world application of math concepts used in the creation of a city while considering mathematical terms that we have learned this year.
