This project covers a range of concepts (area, perimeter, volume, multiplication, money, design, location and shape).

Students are tasked with designing a zoo. They must complete a range of tasks, for example:

• Create a map of their zoo
• Create nets and construct a 3D model of their zoo
• Find the area, perimeter and volume of each enclosure
• Calculate the cost of building a fence for each enclosure
• Give directions to get around the zoo
• Design a logo, entry ticket and zoo keeper uniform

Bike Ride using Cartesian Plane

Posted by Miss Lawrence | Posted in Addition, Angles, Cartesian Plane, Coordinates, Location, Mapping | Posted on June 29, 2016

Have students map out a bike ride that goes for a specific distance (e.g. – 5km).

• Listing coordinates of intersections and landmarks
• Writing directions
• Calculating the time it would take to complete the bike ride, allowing for walking across roads
• Investigating height of terrain to see vertical meters covered
• Measure the angle of turns made

Challenges could also be made as to how much distance is covered in a particular quadrant.
