					Geometry Map Project: Lines, Angles and Triangles
Math Fundamentals Goal Your goal is to design a map that includes several different kinds of lines and angles.

Role You are an intern at Hasbro, a company that designs board games. Audience The audience is your immediate supervisor and a group of volunteer testers between the ages of 8 and 15. Situation You have been asked to create a map of a made up place for a board game. Upon completion of this project you will present your map to the class as if you are presenting your map to your supervisor and the volunteer testers. Product Performance and Purpose You need to draw a template of the map for the board game. Your map must include the following: 1. A title 2. Two sets of streets that are parallel 3. Two sets of streets that are perpendicular 4. One street that intersects another street to form an obtuse angle 5. One street that intersects another to form an acute angle 6. One street that is a line segment 7. One street that is a line 8. One street that is a ray 9. A minimum of five local attractions (such as an ice cream parlor, swimming pool, school, gas station, movie theater, etc.) 10. A compass rose 11. You are also to write out five different sets of directions from one place to another. Each set of directions must have one of these terms: parallel, intersecting or perpendicular. These directions should be able to get your volunteer testers from one place to another on your map without getting lost! Standards and Criteria for Success Your map needs to include: * Accurate representations of each of the requirements listed above * Complete directions with correct use of terminology * Neat and attractive design
