Gray, Elizabeth D.; Tullier-Holly, Denise
Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, v13 n3 p144-149 Oct 2007
This article describes a joint effort between a mathematics educator and a middle school art teacher who wanted their students to experience first hand how construction works in the real world. It starts with students designing and building scale models for a large inflatable item in which they display their art and extends to building the structure.
