Hey everybody! My name is Phil Stoecker. I am a student at Aurora University and pre-teaching at East Aurora High school. I have a project in which I need to create a unit to make geometry pop! As most math teachers know, math may be the hardest subject to get students excited about. I am looking to create a unit where high school students are to design and construct a high-school in which they would like to attend.
My current ideas include using geometry to construct the dimensions of the building, keep track of costs or building materials, furniture, supplies, etc., and finally they would present their projects to myself, school administrators, and the class to try and persuade us to build their school. By doing this, it will keep students' schools realistic. If anyone has any suggestions, alterations, or comments I would greatly appreciate it! I look forward to hearing any responses. Thanks!
