I.Project (10 points)

Complete this table to let me know you have

III.Paragraph (7 points)

Write a paragraph guided tour explaining your design. We will be doing a gallery walk next week, which means you will not be stationed with your design, and those visiting your design will need a written explanation of how and why you designed your space the way you did. Point out your favorite features, anything you think is especially cool and unique. You must incorporate at least 5 “math” words from the following list:

  • Base
  • Dimension
  • Volume
  • Area
  • Unit(s)- feet, inches, centimeters, meters
  • Length
  • Width
  • Depth
  • Cubed
