Designing Playgrounds. Math Project Series.
Ham, Jan
This book presents architectural design activities for students to utilize skills in mathematics (geometry, measurement, estimating, and scale), science (materials and engineering), and social studies (surveys, contracts, community planning, and social interaction) to create a playground and to clearly express their ideas about space and play. The sequence of activities requires 11 to 12 classroom hours and covers 2 to 3 weeks to complete all phases of the project. The curriculum plan accommodates indoor and outdoor activities and a 7 hour classroom sequence as opposed to the aforementioned 11 to 12 hour sequences. (ASK)
