Miniature golf project

Miniature Golf Project

  • Your group represents a golf course design and construction company

  • There will be 6 members per group with the following responsibilities

    • Course Designer

    • Consulting

    • Hole Designer

    • Accounting

    • Marketing

    • Technical Support


Course designer

Course Designer

  • Make nine holes on Geometer’s Sketchpad, each as a separate sketch

    • Find area, perimeter, and direct distance to hole for each one

      • Be sure not to count interior edges between different areas

    • Use color

    • “Pocket” diameter is 3in., but you can use a point in the sketch

    • Show the scale for each hole

    • Assume all holes are flat

  • Make overall course map showing all holes

    • Use dilations and reflections to put all holes together

    • Show the scale used

    • Don’t worry about area between holes (or cost of constructing that area)


Consulting

Consulting

  • List geometry standards used in making of course

  • Work alongside course designer to show hole-in-one route with a dotted line

    • Adjust hole shape if necessary

    • You should always make it possible to get a hole-in-one

    • Use reflections

  • Decide on realistic par for each hole (at least 2)


Sample hole 1

Sample Hole 1

  • Area (with “pocket”) = 32.27 sq.ft

  • Perimeter = 35.91ft

  • Distance = 10.58ft

  • Par 2


Sample hole 2

Sample Hole 2

  • Area (with “pocket”) = 33.62 sq.ft

  • Perimeter = 43.89ft

  • Distance = 8.95ft

  • Par 2


Sample hole 3

Sample Hole 3

  • Area (w/“pocket”, w/o bumpers) = 21.35 sq.ft

  • Perimeter (w/bumper edges) = 40.59ft

  • Distance = 8.78ft

  • Par 3


Sample course layout

Sample course layout

  • Uses sample holes 2,3

  • Use rotations and dilations


Hole designer

Hole Designer

  • Make a scale model of a single hole

  • Use a shoe box, wood, styrofoam, whatever works best

  • Calculate area and perimeter using geometric formulae (not using GSP)

  • Indicate the scale


Accounting

Accounting

  • You will need to come up with the costs of construction using the following data (and ignoring labor, etc.)

    • Turf:$1.25/sq.ft

    • Trim around hole,bumpers: $0.25/ft.

    • Cement bumpers:$2.50/sq.ft

    • “Pocket”:$5 each

  • Calculate the following:

    • Costs for each hole

    • Cost for each material

    • Total costs


Marketing

Marketing

  • Decide on a company name, a golf course name, and golf course theme

  • Design advertising and/or other information

  • Design the score card, listing par and direct length for each hole

  • List course rules and costs to play

  • Lead the presentation of your group


Technical support

Technical Support

  • Put all Geometer’s Sketchpad, Excel, and all other documents from your group members into a PowerPoint/MacWorks presentation

    • Make it look good!

  • Explain all the geometry used in the design of the course


Assessment

Assessment

  • Each group is responsible for a PowerPoint presentation, a copy for me on diskette of your presentation, and a scale model of a hole; I’m not collecting anything else

  • Every group member gets the same grade, except for obvious exceptions

  • If you think you’re done with your job, help someone else in your group!

  • Each individual grade (for each job) will be a score from 1 to 10, then all of it scaled to 100

  • This project is worth 2.5% of your grade

  • You will have 4 days of computer room time, with presentations on the last half of the 4th day

    • GET ORGANIZED ASAP
