## The purpose

The purpose of this project is to create a dream bedroom by using various technology tools and problem solving. By the end of this real-world unit students will be able to add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers. They will be able to calculate tax, area, and scale involving ratios. When presented with a problem students will be able to collect and analyze data to determine the best possible solution. Students will be able to use different medias to present their information.

## TASKS

The project is broken up into four main tasks:

Task 1: Brainstorm bedroom items without limit and create a concept map to organize the information

Task 2: Determine a future career and research information to determine an appropriate budget for your dream room

Task 3: Research and organize bedroom item prices into a spreadsheet

Task 4: Create a scale model or scale drawing of your bedroom

## Standards

**MATH COMMON CORE**

7.NS.A.1

Apply and extend previous understandings of addition and subtraction to add and subtract rational numbers; represent

addition and subtraction on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram.

7.NS.A.2

Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division and of fractions to multiply and divide rational

numbers.

7.NS.A.3

Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving the four operations with rational numbers.
