Carpet your bedroom - functional math
An activity for students to design a tessellation of carpet tiles for their bedroom. From the design they need to work out costs from screenshots of carpet tile prices, calculate the cost fo the glue. There are 3 levels to this task - from a basic bronze version to the gold version which includes an algebra extension related to cost of getting a carpet fitted. Very real world focus and some good discussion if you let the students use their own bedroom floor plans or students start to use part carpet tiles or use hexagonal tilings etc. Enjoy
