1 Re-Designing a Living Room Jason Gnegy, St. Johns High School Introduction: While you appreciate tie-dye, bell bottoms, big collars, shag carpet, olive green appliances, and all the other fashion and design trends of the 1970s, a young couple has decided it is time to update their living room from the out-dated décor to a more modern look. The young couple is looking to save money and is quite handy, they decide that they are going to do all the work themselves. They have hired you and your team to design their new living room and let them know what it will cost to transform their 1970s room. It is time for this young couple to throw out the carpet rake and get up to date! Introduction Task Process Resources Evaluation Conclusion Credits Teachers Page

2 Task Jason Gnegy, St. Johns High School You and your partners are to completely redesign a living room giving it a more modern day appearance. This redesign will require you to paint the walls with an updated color, to install crown molding, and to install a new laminate floor replacing that old shag carpet.

3 Process Jason Gnegy, St. Johns High School You and your partners will decide who will complete each job. Job #1: Designer You are to decide on what color to paint the walls, what type of crown molding to install, and what kind of laminate floor will be installed. You will also need to make a scale drawing of the floor plan and each wall to show your new design. Let your artistic skills flourish as you give this room a much needed makeover.

4 Job #2: Shopper Extraordinaire You will be shopping for all of the materials needed to transform this room. You will work closely with the designer to buy the proper materials and tools to transform the room. You will need to calculate precisely the cost for each individual part of the project by creating an itemized list of materials and supplies.

5 Process Jason Gnegy, St. Johns High School Job #3: Computer Technician You are to develop a PowerPoint slide show that shows your teams plan for re-design. This should include pictures of the materials used and include the calculations used to compute the cost of each part of the project. This should also include a total cost of the complete re-design.

12 Conclusion In this WebQuest, you took two mathematical concepts and used them to re-decorate a living room. You should have learned, by now, that the concepts of area and perimeter have real life applications. In actuality, all math learned in school has real life applications, some of which is easy to see some of which is not so evident at first glance. Many concepts that you learn in a math class you personally may never use in your lifetime, but someone somewhere is using that math concept in conjunction with a whole lot of other math concepts to do a job. Since at this point in your educational career no one is 100% certain on their lifes path, it is essential to prepare you for the unknown. In addition, learning is not always about the individual concept being taught but rather you may be learning exactly how to learn, and that is the education that you are receiving. Learning does not stop when you are no longer in school. Introduction Task Process Resources Evaluation Conclusion Credits Teachers Page

13 Credits This WebQuest is the original design of Jason Gnegy, St. Johns High School developed through an online course at Fresno Pacific University. Permissions We all benefit by being generous with our work. Permission is granted for others to use and modify this WebQuest for educational, non-commercial purposes as long as the original authorship is credited. The modified WebQuest may be shared only under the same conditions Introduction Task Process Resources Evaluation Conclusion Credits Teachers Page

14 Teacher's Page This WebQuest is used in a course called Worldly Math at St. Johns High School in St. Johns, MI. It is used for a 11 th and 12 th grade student. The Worldly Math course is a class created by Jason Gnegy to address the question of When are we ever going to use this? It is a course that prepares students for their every day lives.

15 Lesson Plan Title: Re-Designing of a Living Room Grade Level: 11 th and 12 th Standards Addressed: State of Michigan Standards and Benchmarks: A2.4.1 Identify the family of function best suited for modeling a given real-world situation. G.SR Find area and perimeter of complex figures by sub- dividing them into basic shapes (quadrilaterals, triangles, and circles) Objectives Materials Procedures Assessment WebQuest Teacher's Page Lesson Plan Objectives Materials Procedures Assessment

16 Objectives Students will be able to understand and apply their knowledge of Area. Students will be able to understand and apply their knowledge of Perimeter. Students will be able to calculate the cost of materials and supplies for home improvement. Students will be able to work cooperatively with other students. WebQuest Teacher's Page Lesson Plan Objectives Materials Procedures Assessment

17 Materials All students will need access to the Internet and a presentation software program (i.e PowerPoint or OpenOffice Impress). Students will also need to use a data projector to make their final presentation. WebQuest Teacher's Page Lesson Plan Objectives Materials Procedures Assessment

18 Procedure Allow students at least 4-5 hours of class time to gather and prepare their information. Then allow enough for students to give their final presentations. WebQuest Teacher's Page Lesson Plan Objectives Materials Procedures Assessment

19 See the WebQuest's assessment section for the grading rubrics.assessment The number values can be changed to give more or less points. Another variation is to use the rubrics as they are and then multiply their score by a set number (i.e, 2, 3, or 2.5) thus making the assignment worth more points.
