Maggie Johnson, 8th grader at Holley Navarre Middle School, is currently taking Geometry Honors online through Santa Rosa Online's partnership with Florida Virtual School. The work that Maggie did on one of her projects in this course amazed her teacher, Jennifer Joyner.
Here's what Mrs. Joyner had to say about Maggie's work: "Maggie
took a unique approach to this honors Geometry project. She saw geometric
shapes in the negative space of her friend's dance pose and created her replica
based on those dimensions. Maggie's commitment to excellence shows
through her project's accuracy of measurements, creativity,
and completion of the project in a timely manner!"
Kudos to Maggie for her extraordinary work!
Geometry Honors Project Instructions: 1.Choose
an object from your environment from which you will make a scaled down replica. The object you choose must be a composite figure, meaning a figure composed of
more than one geometrical shape. In other words, you cannot simply choose a
triangle or rectangle. You must choose something like a car, an object that is
made of many different geometrical figures.
a construction of your object on a piece of paper, using a compass and
a note of any transformations (translations, reflections, rotations, or
dilations) that occur in the construction.
the object you have chosen.
the ratio between the object and your replica or model. Keep a record of all mathematical calculations used throughout your process.
