Geometry in Construction
Students in this class will learn safety, problem solving, machine and tool use, and drawing interpretation. Be exposed to practical skills in building and carpentry trades by construction multiple structures that can be used for many purposes. Utilize technology in an effort to further study energy conservation and green building techniques. Understand and exploit the interdependence between algebra and geometry. Learn common core set of geometric facts. Use coordinate geometry in the study of area, perimeter, volume, transformation, congruence, and functions. Most of the construction work relates to or mirrors the math side of the curriculum. The course is recommended for all students who want a hands on approach to learning geometry. No previous construction experience is required.
