Students will draw a scale model of their previously designed structure and use scale factor to find volume and surface area.
This is the last lesson in a series of 4 math lessons that explore various concepts related to disaster survival. The initial lesson will discuss exponential growth using a "zombie virus" as an example, leading students to consider how to survive a zombie apocalype. In subsequent lessons students will use triangulation to determine how far away an object (zombie) is and determine volume and surface area of 3D structures and design a personal "survival" structure. In this lesson students will learn how scale factor effects surface area and volume and draw a scale model of the structure they previously designed.
