# YOUR FUTURISTIC HOME

## MS. LOUISE | GRADE 7 | PERFORMANCE TASK

Student Name: __________________________________ Submission Date: _______________________________
DUE DATE: 26th October 2014
Goal: Create a proposal for designing a futuristic home, which meets your needs.
Role: You are an architect and must design a building plan to put forward as part of your proposal for the Expo
2020 city.
Audience: Your target audience will be submitting you proposal to Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashed Al Maktoum
Situation: The UAE will build a new city in Jebel Ali to host the Expo 2020.
Product:
Your job is to create a proposal, on a large display board, for the design of a futuristic home that should include:
1) Ground floor plan (A3 page)
- Include at least 10 different polygons in your plan which must be clearly labeled
- Measure and label at least 8 different sides using the appropriate units of scale
- Identify and label 6 different types of angles
- Measure and label at least 6 different angles
2) Front view of the house (A3 page)
- Measure and label the interior angles of 2 polygon shapes
- Measure and label the exterior angles of 2 polygon shapes
3) Draw a tessellation on either the ground floor or front view of the house (A4 page)
4) Materials you are going to use in construction of this house
5) Details of any futuristic methods or energy resources you might use in construction
6) Marks will be awarded for creativity and unique designs

Standards:
American Common Core
7.G.A.2 Draw (freehand, with ruler and protractor, and with technology) geometric shapes with given conditions.
Focus on constructing triangles from three measures of angles or sides, noticing when the conditions determine a
unique triangle, more than one triangle, or no triangle.
7.EE.B.4 Use variables to represent quantities in a real-world or mathematical problem, and construct simple
equations and inequalities to solve problems by reasoning about the quantities.

MYP Standards
