The first featured table at the Making Math Expo is hosted by ACOE Core Learning’s own Jim Town. At his table you will be tasked with designing a vessel that holds exactly a tablespoon. You will then create your vessel using CAD software. After your design is realized in the CAD software, you can print out your design on a 3D printer and take it home. The only catch is you must scale your design so that it only prints a teaspoon sized vessel.
So come see us on March 28th between 9am and 3pm at Lighthouse Charter School in Oakland and make some math!
If you are a teacher who wants to use this project in your classroom, supporting documents and scaffolding activities can be found here.
