__2288 Geometry In Construction__Number of semesters: 2 (10 credits)

Prerequisite: Algebra 1, students must be co-enrolled in MYP Geometry

*Meets Requirements: 1 (Elective Credit Only)*

Geometry in construction is an integrated class that teaches all the concepts and standards of a normal geometry class in addition to the design, planning, and construction skills of a construction systems class. This is done by building a house for a family in need, on the school site, while learning the math necessary to complete the project. This contextualized learning enables students to immediately apply the learning they have from the classroom in an authentic, humanitarian project that both motivates and challenges all students to apply their learning every day. The geometry curriculum that will be used will cover the same topics that a normal geometry class would cover, but in a slightly different order so that each topic occurs at a point in time that coincides with the construction work that is going on for the house. This creates a pragmatic need, each day, for the learning at hand which motivates students in both arenas. Throughout the duration of the course, students will be engaged in smaller projects that scaffold their understanding of math, construction, and the community at large. These smaller projects will focus on highlighting communication skills, team work skills, community involvement, and excellence in building and mathematical problem solving.
