Presentation Transcript

• 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

• 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)

• 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)

• Area (with “pocket”) = 32.27 sq.ft

• Perimeter = 35.91ft

• Distance = 10.58ft

• Par 2

• Area (with “pocket”) = 33.62 sq.ft

• Perimeter = 43.89ft

• Distance = 8.95ft

• Par 2

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

• Perimeter (w/bumper edges) = 40.59ft

• Distance = 8.78ft

• Par 3

• Uses sample holes 2,3

• Use rotations and dilations

• 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

• 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

• 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

• 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

• 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

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

• GET ORGANIZED ASAP
