Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Designing the Perfect Floor Plan: Showing Understanding of Area and Perimeter - Section 4: Homework


When I collected homework today, my heart sank with some of the work I saw. My Educreations video shows examples of some of the work I received. I enjoyed seeing their ideas of what kinds of rooms would be right for them. I think this was  a rigorous assignment for most, but I suspect some of my higher end students were bored. I had hoped they would jump on the final page that invites them to use some technology to finish up their floor plan. Not one student tried their PadCad Lite program! I was disappointed. I am going to challenge them to try out the ap and make their floor plans come alive.
