Math BM Reflection

  1. This project relates to the real world when it comes to architecture if you want to become an architect and build buildings you have to know perimeter and area. If you want to become a carpenter and have to patch up a ceiling you have to know the perimeter and area of the whole. Or if you want to redesign the outside of the house and you want to take away some windows or add windows you need to know the are and perimeter of the space where your doing that work.
  2. I would have to say the most exciting part of this project was going outside because it’s always good to go outside to get fresh air instead of staying in a stuffy room the whole time. I also like being able to draw the picture of our buildings. It was fun because I was able to express myself in the drawings and showoff my wonderful artistic talent, as you can see in the picture above.

3. I learned how to figure out the height of the building besides just measuring it the regular way. there are numerous ways to measure the height of a building. You could use the mirror method which is placing a mirror on the ground in front of the building and looking into the mirror until u see the top of the building. Then you measure how many feet you are away from the building and how many feet the building is away from the building. Then you solve a proportion with the information you have. Another method I learned is the picture method which is when you use someone or something and see how many of them does it take to get the height of the building. You measure that that someone or something and multiply the height by how many of them get it takes to get the height of the building.
