Made 4 Math #24 City Design Project


Recently finished up a unit on parallel lines and transversals and used this as an alternative assessment. I found this four years ago somewhere and have modified it and added reflection questions to it. I have no idea where I found this so let me know if I can give credit to somebody.

Until then, I'm taking partial credit. :)




I used a checklist to grade because I was too lazy to create a nicely done rubric.

Here are some student samples:

  2. Love it! Did the kids struggle with this? Your students are in high school correct? I was thinking about this with some advanced middle school students.

  3. Did the same thing with my students and the loved it. Lead to a lot of discussions of placement of the buildings/locations - great stuff. So much better than a boring worksheet for sure.
