Students plan their own city on a Cartesian plane, combining math skills and creativity. Students work in groups using graphing skills to create a city plan.
Students will get practice with the following topics:
• Graphing equations
• Parallel and perpendicular lines
• Systems of linear equations
Some landmarks and roads are already established in the city. Students will graph these items, and then add their own.
Each city will have some features in common, but each one will turn out unique to the group that created it!
In this download, you will receive a PDF of the two-page student handout, which guides groups through the activity. They will create their city on graph paper (or the graph provided) following the instructions given. They will answer questions and make decisions about their city on the handout.
Also provided is a powerpoint to introduce students to city grids.
An answer guide and rubric are also included. (Please note, some answers will vary, and cities will turn out differently.)
This version of "Plan a City" is intended for 8th grade or Algebra I because it focuses on systems. Check out the geometry version which includes more geometry concepts.
