Unit 9, Lesson 4# Restaurant Floor Plan

Open Up Resources 40 min(s)

In this lesson, students create a scale drawing of the floor plan for a restaurant and solve problems involving proportional reasoning about the area or volume of different elements within the floor plan. Students can adapt an outline of their floor plan to make it easier for them to incorporate other requirements, such as the spacing between tables and the maximum distance between the tables and the food pickup area. If students choose to use a compass to draw a circle with a radius representing the 60-foot restriction, or if they make physical scale models of tables, they are choosing tools strategically.
