Lesson Overview

Making a house a home

Students design their own tiny home and use geometry skills to draw a floor plan to scale.

Guide students through the design process, from brainstorming to realization. Students consider what is needed in their tiny home, generate design concepts, measure and draw furniture to scale. Once the floor plan is in place, students can take it further by illustrating elevations or bringing their design into augmented reality.

Educational Value

  • Students use measurement and geometric principles to draw to scale and calculate the area of their design.
  • Students learn basic principles of housing design.
  • Students apply the design process to real-world applications of mathematical concepts.
