Quilt/Tile Design Project


Quilt/Tile Floor Project



You will be making a scale model of a quilt or tile floor you design. The quilt/floor will be made using patterned craft paper and a solid color border. You will find the area and perimeter of the overall quilt/floor, the border, and the body of the quilts/floors. There are many details to this project so you will have to keep everything labeled and organized. You must use formulas with the solutions steps shown. All paper used on this project will be provided by the teacher!

Design:

*Make a design using 3-4 geometric shapes that tessellate or create a pattern. Be sure the design fits in a rectangular shape measuring 6x8 in.

*Determine the dimensions of each individual shape.

*Find the area and perimeter of each shape.

*Find the area and perimeter of the whole design.

Border:

*Create a border for the design 1¼ inch in width.

*Find the area and perimeter (inside and outside measurement) of the border. Show how you found the answers using formulas.

Final Project:


You will be handing in the quilt/floor design with all the information mounted on 1 piece of 12x18 paper. You are being graded on the following (100 pts):

*Complete design with border (25pts)
*Labels and work showing how area and perimeter were found for each component using formulas (30 pts)
*Neatness and organization (15 pts)
*Aesthetics (15 pts)
*Completion of work on due dates (15 pts)

Due Dates:

10/15 Design plan draft approved by teacher
10/19 Border completed (measured, trimmed) with area and perimeter work shown
10/24 Design completed (cut, glued, measured) with formula work showing area and perimeter
10/26 All components completed, brought to class ready to be mounted for final project

Beginning of Year Letter


September 2018



Dear Parents and Guardians of 7C Math Students,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. It will be a year of transition for the students in all areas, including Math. There is a lot more algebra requiring abstract thinking that may not be strong in preteens. I will be working to help them move from concrete thinking by reviewing as we extend concepts throughout the year. At the Back to School Night on Wednesday, Sept. 26th, and in the bi-weekly newsletters, there will be information about the content for the year.

There are a couple of ways your student can get some extra help as needed. I offer help after school from 2-2:45 PM (3:00, if taking the late bus). I am usually here Mondays and Tuesdays but will post the specific days weekly so students can be sure. I allow students that receive a 75 or below on a quiz or test to redo it at home (the incorrect problems only) after coming after school for extra help. This needs to be completed within 2 weeks of receiving the graded quiz/test. This new grade is averaged with the old. You can keep track of the grades on Aspen.

There will be nightly homework that should take about 15-20 minutes on average. Below is a checklist the students received to help guide them. Students can let me know if the homework is taking them much longer. Projects will be posted on the class blog (msms7cmath.blogspot.com). They will be broken down into parts with specific due dates so I can be sure any questions/problems are addressed.

Extra credit options will be available each quarter. Extra credit is due one week before grades close – no exceptions. The extra credit, counted as a quiz, will be graded on adherence to the requirements and quality of the work. This will be posted on the blog.

I look forward to a great year with your child. If you need to reach me, my email address is miley@bpsk12.org My phone is (781) 270-2969. I look forward to seeing you Sept. 26th.

Sincerely,

Ellen Miley
