Unit 3, Lesson 17# Painting a Room

Open Up Resources 55 min(s)

Let's see what it takes to paint a room. Learning targets: students can apply what they have learned about unit rates and percentages to predict how long it will take and how much it will cost to paint all the walls in a room. In this culminating lesson, students make material and cost estimates for a home improvement project, applying and integrating many concepts and skills from the past three units. Students determine the area of the walls of a bedroom, estimate the amount of paint needed to paint them, and determine the cost associated with the project.
