Measurement Culminating Assignment Name: __________________________ Choose one of the following assignments to complete for your culminating activity in measurement. Please be sure to fulfill all assignment criteria. 1) Santa’s New Workshop: With the Christmas season busily upon, Santa has come to the realization that boys and girls have been especially good this year, But as a result, Santa has also come to the conclusion that his workshops are just not functional for all the extra goods his elves must prepare this year! Santa needs to complete some renovations to his workshop in order to accommodate all the new toy making that needs to be done! You need to use your measurement skills to design a model of Santa’s new improved workshop. Your model should include the following: a. a clearly visible title b. a detailed sketch that clearly show all units of measurement c. clearly detailed information outlining the area and perimeter of each room and/or building, with formulas included (a table would be useful here) d. the total area of Santa’s renovated workshop e. creativity and neatness Santa was specific that he required the following in his new renovations – a larger parking lot for his elves, a new stable for his reindeer, large circular worktable with circular benches in the workshop for his elves, a break room, a large kitchen for Mrs. Clause, and, of course, a gaming lounge. He was also clear that he likes a variety of dimensions for his rooms, and was excited to find out that we have been studying shapes in math class – as a result, he wants at least one of every shape included in his renovations! Anything extra you would like to include is completely up to you. Be as creative and thorough as you can. Your final product can be presented as creatively as you desire – blueprint, computer constructed, graph paper, construction paper, 3-D model, etc. I will help provide any materials that the school has available. A table would be an effective and appropriate way to demonstrate your final measurements. Be as creative as you can! Remember, our new shape this year was the circle – make sure there is a focus on this shape in your final design, but other shapes should be used as well. Santa is looking forward to seeing the designs for his new workshop! Good luck! 2) Stained Glass Design: People have been making stained glass designs for thousands of years. Beautiful windows and artwork have been created using stained glass. You are asked to create a stained glass window design using as many different shapes possible that have been discussed in class. You may make an abstract design using the shapes, or create a concrete design (a landscape, an image, etc). You may use various shapes and various sizes of the shapes to complete your design. Use the following criteria to complete your design: a. use centimeter grid paper to sketch your outline and design, remembering to use a variety of shapes and sizes b. use a table to calculate the area of each shape included in your design, including the total area of your glass design c. you will need to calculate the perimeter of each shape in your design – include this information in a table d. construct a model of your stained glass window using tissue paper and black construction paper Be as creative as you can! Remember, our new shape this year was the trapezoid – make sure there is a focus on this shape in your final design, but other shapes should be used as well. Good luck! Unit: Measurment Name: ________________________ RUBRIC Criteria Level 4 Level 3 Level 2 Level 1 Demonstrates an excellent understanding of how to calculate the perimeter and area of 2-D shapes, particularly circles. Solution steps show critical thinking when carrying out plan using one or more strategies to solve problem. Interprets and uses information correctly. Demonstrates a good understanding of how to calculate the perimeter and area of 2-D shapes, particularly circles. Solutions steps show good critical thinking following an appropriate plan. Interprets and uses information correctly and makes reasonable statements. Demonstrates limited understanding of how to calculate the perimeter and area of 2-D shapes, particularly circles. Attempts to choose a strategy and plan, however, is unable to arrive at an answer. Interprets/uses limited elements of the information in the question. Communication Solutions are well-formed, with completeness, accuracy, and full proper math form, vocabulary, and notation. Solutions are incomplete, and scattered and disorganized, with very little math vocabulary and/or notation. No solutions shown. Application Confidently and accurately applies knowledge of area and perimeter to calculate composite figures. Creates an exellent model using measurement skills. Solutions are complete but some proper form is missing to extend and explain thinking, with most proper math vocabulary and notation. Confidently applies knowledge of area and perimeter to calculate composite figures. Creates a model of design using measurement skills. Demonstrates some understanding of how to calculate the perimeter and area of 2-D shapes, particularly circles. Solution steps show some critical thinking developing a limited and/or incorrect solution. Interprets/uses some of the parts of the information given, making somewhat reasonable statements. Solutions are partially complete but disorganized and hard to follow with some attempt at proper math vocabulary and notation. Applies some knowledge of area and perimeter to calculate composite figures. Creates an adequate model of design using some measurement skills. Applies limited knowledge of area and perimeter to calculate composite figures. Creates a simple model of design using few measurement skills. Does not apply measurement skills to create model. Model is incomplete and does not reflect expectations. Knowledge and Understanding Thinking Below Level 1 (R) Demonstrates an insufficient understanding of how to calculate the perimeter and area of 2-D shapes. No attempt at solving the problem. Misinterprets important information in the question.
