Students recreate iconic landmarks in math class
by Staff Writer
MOORESVILLE – Bryan Chappell’s seventh-grade advanced-math classes at Lakeshore Middle School recently created scale models of famous landmarks.
Students found measurements of real buildings or objects and created scale factors to enlarge or reduce the size to make their models.
Students also had to research the actual building and write a short report about the history of the building.
