Dividing a Town into Pizza Delivery Regions

Students explore the concept of area. In this area lesson plan, students pretend to own 5 pizzerias in a town. Students determine the best way to divide the town so that every house delivery comes from the closest pizzeria. Students use ratios, proportions, area, and perpendicular bisectors to solve this problem.

When I am trying to find an alternative lesson from my norm, I try Lesson Planet, and always find a lesson that I can use. Sometimes a different perspective from a colleague can be that "point" that will work for that concept. I really feel that Lesson Planet is very well organized and easy to use. Thank you so much Lesson Planet for your help in my classroom.
