TITLE : Unit 11: Engineering Design SUGGESTED DURATION : 10 days

Unit Overview

Introduction
This is a project-based unit where students apply bundled student expectations that address constructing and analyzing models and making conjectures about geometric relationships in engineering design of architectural structures. Concepts are incorporated into both mathematical and real-world problem situations. According to the Texas Education Agency, mathematical process standards including application, tools and techniques, communication, representations, relationships, and justifications should be integrated (when applicable) with content knowledge and skills so that students are prepared to use mathematics in everyday life, society, and the workplace.

Prior to this Unit
In Units 01, 03, and 04, students investigated axiomatic systems and applied logical arguments to justify conjectures. In Units 05 – 09, students used models and diagrams to illustrate geometric relationships and solve problems. In Unit 02, images are created using rigid and non-rigid transformations. In Unit 09, students investigated and applied proportional and non-proportional dimensional change. In Unit 02, students determined the slope and equation for parallel and perpendicular lines. In Units 04 and 05, students investigated relationships in congruent triangles, similar triangles, and right triangles. In Units 08 and 09, students investigated and determined measurements in two- and three-dimensional figures, including area and volume. In Unit 10, students determined probability based on area in contextual problems.

During this Unit
Students apply prior knowledge to construct a three-dimensional structure and analyze the structure using two-dimensional views. Student groups research and select a structure composed of polygons and circles that meets at least five specified geometric elements. Students construct a three-dimensional scale model of the structure with lengths labeled to the nearest centimeter. Students draw two-dimensional diagrams of the top, front, and side views of the scale model, labeling all lengths to the nearest centimeter and all angles to the nearest degree. Students determine equations of the lines that represent each edge of the diagrams of the top, front, and side views of the scale model that could be used to create blueprints in a computer graphics software program. Students calculate the exposed surface area and volume of the scale model and summarize how the surface area and volume of the scale model could be used to find the surface area and volume of the original structure in square feet and cubic feet, respectively. Students create a list of at least three conjectures about the geometric relationships in the structure and verify these conjectures using measurement, deductive reasoning, coordinate geometry, or other techniques.

After this Unit
Students will continue to use these concepts in subsequent courses in mathematics. Students will also apply these concepts in possible career choices and everyday situations.

Additional Notes
This unit is supporting the development of Texas College and Career Readiness Standards (TxCCRS): III. Geometric Reasoning A1, A2, B1, B2, B3, C1, C3, D1; IV. Measurement Reasoning A3, C1, C2, C3; VIII. Problem Solving and Reasoning; IX. Communication and Representation; X. Connections.

Research
According to The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (2000) this approach to studying quadrilaterals supports the need for all students to be able to analyze characteristics and properties of geometric shapes and develop mathematical arguments about geometric relationships. Students in grades 9 – 12 should specifically be able to investigate relationships among classes of two-dimensional geometric objects, make and test conjectures about them, and solve problems. At the conclusion of this unit, students are asked to create a graphic organizer to help classify quadrilaterals. The TxCCRS cites many skills related to the communication and representation of mathematical ideas. According to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (2009) in Focus in High School Mathematics: Reasoning and Sense Making, the key elements of reasoning and sense making with geometry must include multiple representations of functions. In this unit, students gather data from geometric figures and organize this information into tables, graphs or diagrams. This leads to the development of symbolic expressions and verbal descriptions. A variety of representations helps make relationships more understandable to more students than working with symbolic representations alone. These approaches serve as the basis for this unit on polygons and circle. TxCCRS cites many skills related to the communication and representation of mathematical ideas. According to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, using diagrams and constructions to interpret and communicate geometric relationships is essential in geometry. Using definitions of figures to characterize figures in terms of their properties is another essential in geometry. In geometry, the “proving process involves working with diagrams, variation and invariance, conjectures, and definitions.” (2012, p. 92)

The English Language Proficiency Standards (ELPS), as required by 19 Texas Administrative Code, Chapter 74, Subchapter A, §74.4, outline English language proficiency level descriptors and student expectations for English language learners (ELLs). School districts are required to implement ELPS as an integral part of each subject in the required curriculum.

School districts shall provide instruction in the knowledge and skills of the foundation and enrichment curriculum in a manner that is linguistically accommodated commensurate with the student’s levels of English language proficiency to ensure that the student learns the knowledge and skills in the required curriculum.


School districts shall provide content-based instruction including the cross-curricular second language acquisition essential knowledge and skills in subsection (c) of the ELPS in a manner that is linguistically accommodated to help the student acquire English language proficiency.

ELLs may be at the beginning, intermediate, advanced, or advanced high stage of English language acquisition in reading. In order for the ELL to meet grade-level learning expectations across the foundation and enrichment curriculum, all instruction delivered in English must be linguistically accommodated (communicated, sequenced, and scaffolded) commensurate with the student's level of English language proficiency. For Kindergarten and Grade 1, certain of these student expectations apply to text read aloud for students not yet at the stage of decoding written text. The student is expected to:

ELLs may be at the beginning, intermediate, advanced, or advanced high stage of English language acquisition in writing. In order for the ELL to meet grade-level learning expectations across foundation and enrichment curriculum, all instruction delivered in English must be linguistically accommodated (communicated, sequenced, and scaffolded) commensurate with the student's level of English language proficiency. For Kindergarten and Grade 1, certain of these student expectations do not apply until the student has reached the stage of generating original written text using a standard writing system. The student is expected to:
