Title: Build a City on Geometry
Description: The students will be split into small, cooperative groups and build a city following specific guidelines. The students will learn how a city is constructed with angles, intersections, parallel, intersecting, and transversal streets. They will understand that buildings are located at particular points which are considered alternate interior or exterior angles, corresponding angles, etc. This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.

Adding It All Up
In this lesson, students draw various polygons and investigate their interior angles. The investigation is done using both an interactive tool and paper and pencil to foster an understanding of how different patterns can lead to the same solution. After comparing results with a partner, students develop a formula showing the relationship between the number of sides of a polygon and the sum of the interior angles.
