Reflection: Problem-based Approaches Geometric Modeling: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Day 3 - Section 3: Activity


The posters demonstrate how students solved the problems. Group 1 had to figure out the most amount of doors that could fit in the room. They figured out the smallest space needed for 1 door was 5 feet. Students from Group 2 created a chart to show the potential lengths and widths of the room. They decided that a length of 20 feet and a width of 15 feet would give them the fewest number of doors. Group 3 came up with the same results, but did not show their trials on the poster. They used a calculator to come up with their answers.
