Geometry students at The King’s Academy were given an extra credit challenge: to draw or construct a building or scene using straight segments (no curves).
Drawings: Students were to use only polygons (no curves) to complete a drawing of a building, landscape, garden, farm, etc. The more polygons they used, the higher their score. The more coordinated color scheme they had, the higher the score. If they included effects, such as shadows/shading, or angled views, they earned more points.
Buildings: Students were to use only polygons (no curves) to complete a building (church, house, airport terminal, hotel, office building, etc.) The more polygons they used, the higher their score. The more coordinated color scheme they had, the higher the score. If they included 3-D effects such as stucco or other types of surfacing, raised letters, etc., the more points they earned.
Students had about one month to complete their extra credit.
These students rose to the challenge with beautiful work! The students’ geometry teacher Mrs. Collins said, “I am very proud of these students and I wanted to share their work.”
