Color Your World

Students calculate the cost of painting a room. In this surface area lesson, students create a scale model from provided dimensions of a bedroom. Groups use area formulas to find square footage, from which materials and labor costs are figured. An extension activity exposes students to technology that will potentially reduce their redecorating costs.
