Homework Wednesday June 06, 2018

We are nearly finished out Area Project...

If you are starting the next project, you will have picked from the Wheel of Theodorus, Erathosthenes and the calculation of the earth's circumference or the Golden Mean. Start with a simple title and introduction slide and see if you can find a little information on your new topic.

Homework Monday June 4th, 2018

Homework tonight continues on Google Classroom. Please complete one or two more slides on the Area Project. By now you should be working on your final shapes and/or completing the written questions:

Is the ancient Egyptian formula correct? How does the answer from the ancient Egyptian formula compare to actual area calculated using our modern formula?

Does the Egyptian formula favor either the tax collector or the landowner? Explain.

Describe the correct way of calculating the area of an arbitrary quadrilateral?

 

 

 

 

Field Day tomorrow!

No Math and no assigned homework for the weekend.

If you would like to work on your Google Classroom project - great, but it is not mandatory.

 

 

 

 

Homework Wednesday 30th, 2018

Homework tonight is on Google Classroom. Please complete one or two more slides on the Area Project.

 

All our projects are looking really good! But the shapes are getting a little more complex, you may need to look at Math Antics or Khan Academy to get help with the Trapezoid, Rhombus and Kite.

Area of a Trapezoid

Area of a Rhombus

Area of  Rhombus

Area of a Kite

 

Math is Fun is also a helpful link for the project.

 

 

 

 

Homework Tuesday May 29th, 2018

Homework your tonight is on Google Classroom. Please complete one or two slides for the Area Project we started in class.

 

 

The Ancient Egyptians developed some of the earliest mathematics, partly to keep track of land and finances. The Egyptians levied tax on the land people owned, and needed methods of measuring the area of people’s property.

 

Much of the fertile land in Egypt was (and is) bordering the River Nile, which flooded regularly. When the river receded it often followed a slightly different course, so the shape and size of people’s property could change dramatically from year to year.

 

Archeologists, deciphering ancient records, believe the Egyptian tax collectors used the formula:

 

 

Area = ½(a + c) x ½(b +d)

 

to find the area of any quadrilateral. Where a, b, c and d are the lengths of the four sides.

 

 1.     Draw a trapezoid, parallelogram, rectangle, square, rhombus and kite, and create dimensions for each side.

 

 2.     Find the area of each quadrilateral using the ancient Egyptian formula and the modern formula.

 

 

 

Investigate the following:

 

 

 

Is the ancient Egyptian formula correct? How does the answer from the ancient Egyptian formula compare to actual area calculated using our modern formula?

 

 

 

Does the Egyptian formula favor either the tax collector or the landowner? Explain.

 

 

 

Describe the correct way of calculating the area of an arbitrary quadrilateral?

 

 

 

You will be using Google Classroom a whole lot next year in Edgar!
