Using Chrome Extensions for Real Life Math Applications

As a component of their Measurement unit in math, students in 6G learned about how to calculate the area and perimeter of different types of shapes.  We discussed real life applications of area and perimeter and how useful this knowledge can be when we grow up.  Using the Floorplanner Chrome extension, students designed their dream house.  They calculated the area and perimeter of the different rooms using the formulas they learned in class.   Finally, the used the Screencastify extension to record a screencast explanation of their work.   

Check out some samples of their work below:
