Color Your World

Middle schoolers 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 middle schoolers to technology that will potentially reduce their redecorating costs.
