Grade 8 has been busy working on their SJCC Pool Budget Proposals!
We’re getting down to the final expenses in our spreadsheets. It’s been a long yet meaningful process connecting all of our math strands to find the cost and amounts of “re-vamping” the outdoor SJCC pool and even adding a circular hot tub! Real Life Math in Action!
Students had to use scale models to find:
- All costs of the pool for 3 months plus reno costs; such as the following:
- water delivery
- water charge
- water consumption
- evaporation rates
- employee E.I. and CPP Contributions
- membership costs and possible algebraic equations to break even and make a profit
- Along with a graphed analysis when the budget proposal is complete, students also had to construct and make a scale model “prototype” of what their pool may look like.
Great work guys and gals! We’ll be completed the entire project in 2 weeks!
