# Welcome to Grade 8 Geometry and Technology

**Goal / Objective: **

In this Grade 8 mathematics seminar, students will learn the principles of Euclidean Geometry, then to apply these concepts, using the Engineering Design Process, to the design and fabrication of a model of a modern architectural building or interactive sculpture. In the process of doing this, they will become familiar with digital fabrication technologies including InkScape vector graphics, SketchUp and/or Solidworks CAD software, Rapman 3-D printing, and lasercutting, and apply these technologies to the construction of their model.

This is an entirely new course for the middle school. It will be taught in conjunction with The Art of Problem Solving (**http://www.artofproblemsolving.com**/) online Geometry course, Sept 24th 2012- March 5th 2013.

This is an advanced course for a small cohort of students who completed Grade 8 Advanced Algebra while in Grade 7.

Available facilities include both Mac and PC computer labs, woodshop, 3D Printer, and access(off-site) to a lasercutter through the Artisan's Asylum.
