In this team-taught, double-period course, students learn plane geometry concepts by applying real-world construction concepts through Computer Aided Design as they create and build small projects, such as playhouses and gazebos. Throughout the course, students develop skills in teamwork, problem solving, and project management. This course covers all necessary plane geometry concepts and will prepare students to enter an Algebra 2 course in the following year. Prior experience in woodworking is not required. This course fulfills the graduation requirement for mathematics and fine and/or practical arts.
