  • Slide 1 - Eiffel Tower Challenge! A Middle-Grades Math Project By: Karey M. Santos, NBCT
  • Slide 2 - The Eiffel Tower, designed by Gustave Eiffel, was an incomparable engineering feat when it was erected in preparation for the Universal Exposition of 1889.
  • Slide 3 - It only took five months to build the foundations and twenty-one to finish assembling the metal pieces of the Tower. March 15, 1888  September 15, 1888  December 26, 1888  March 12, 1889 The assembly of the 300 meter tower was a marvel of precision, as all chroniclers of the period agree. (Imagine a tower taller than 3 football fields, end to end.) The construction work began in January 1887 and was finished on March 31, 1889.

  • Slide 4 - Tower is basically composed of two parts: - a base, which is a sort of sturdy stool, standing on 4 main pillars, and - a tower firmly attached atop. The pillar base allows the Tower to withstand the swaying wind forces.
  • Slide 5 - Because the basic structure composed of laminated iron is visible, the Geometry is clear. Let’s explore this marvel, looking for the MATH! Use your Math terms to describe what you see…
  • Slide 6 - Parallel These stairs lead you to the first level observation deck. Where is the Math? Equidistant Congruent

  • Slide 13 - Your Challenge! You will work with a Design and Construction Crew to create a new Tower, using only the materials provided by your teacher.
  • Slide 14 - Your Tower base may not have more than 4 supports at the base. Your Tower base must be set on the mat provided. Your Tower must be structurally able to support a tennis ball at the top. Your Tower must reach minimum height requirements.
  • Slide 15 - Your completed Tower will compete with other Towers for maximum height – so build it tall! Your team must design an original flag that expresses a Mathematical Theme which will be placed on the top of your Tower.
  • Slide 16 - Product Scoring Rubric: Completed on Time 20 pts. Follows Design Plan 10 pts. Meets size specs. 10 pts. Meets support specs. 10 pts. Original flag 10 pts. Creativity 10 pts. Neatness 10 pts. Teamwork 20 pts. 10 EXTRA CREDIT POINTS WILL BE ALLOTTED TO THE TALLEST TOWER!!!
  • Slide 17 - Start designing and good luck!
  • Slide 18 - Sources: Eiffel Tower historical information/photos http://www.tour-eiffel.fr/teiffel/uk/ Flag of France http://education.yahoo.com/reference/factbook/fr/flag.html Photographs taken by Karey & Joe Santos, 6/06.
  • Slide 19 - SC Grade 4 MATH Curriculum Standards Addressed: 4-1.3 Explain and justify answers to problems on the basis of mathematical properties, structures, and relationships on mathematical properties, structures, and relationships. 4-1.4 Generate descriptions and mathematical statements about relationships between and among classes of objects. 4-4.1 Analyze the quadrilaterals squares, rectangles, trapezoids, rhombuses, and parallelograms according to their properties. 4-4.5 Use transformation(s) to prove congruency. 4-4.6 Represent points, lines, line segments, rays, angles, and polygons. 4-5.1 Use appropriate tools to measure objects to the nearest unit: measuring length in quarter inches, centimeters, and millimeters; measuring liquid volume in cups, quarts, and liters; and measuring weight and mass in pounds, milligrams, and kilograms. 4-5.2 Compare angle measures with referent angles of 45 degrees, 90 degrees, and 180 degrees to estimate angle measures.
