Geometry of Mount Laurel Project Name: ___________________
Due Date: _____ Directions: Geometry is all around us, even in our home town. Your task is to take 15 original photographs of items in Mount Laurel that demonstrate some type of geometrical representation. The pictures are to be displayed on a poster with each picture labeled and defined. Keep in mind that some geometry vocabulary words are easier than others (for example it is easier to find a circle in Mount Laurel than it would be to find concentric circles. It is easier to find a triangle than it is to find a hexagonal prism). You will be graded not only on taking 15 pictures, but on the difficulty level of the vocabulary that you chose to use. Use the glossary/index in the back of your textbook to assist you in determining what vocabulary words you would like to use. No late projects will be accepted. Early projects will be accepted. The criteria for success for this project is listed on the back of the sheet. Please fill in the 15 vocabulary words that you used in the first column of the spreadsheet.
