Sit down to take your geometry test!

Posted by on Feb 22, 2016 in General | No Comments

Across the city, students may be told to sit down to take their latest math exam, but at the Workshop School, students have demonstrated their geometric acumen by constructing chairs. Students in Mr. Lauterbach’s math class designed and built chairs after studying geometric principles regarding angles and shapes. Instead of proving a theorem with pencil and paper, Workshop Students’ skills were applied first in TinkerCad, an online design tool, and then in the shop. Below, you can see as few of the students’ amazing products. Pottery Barn: Watch out!
