I can’t seem to get the video to upload or play? Is it necessary to the lesson? This is true for all the other lesson video links for me as well.

Thanks-

I’m using this lesson on Monday to introduce my end of the year project – which is basically this same lesson but taken up to a larger magnitude. I have students design the floor plan of an entire dream house. This is the third year I’m doing it and I have gotten some pretty great results each year. The best part is that it uses so many skills – fractions, proportions, measurement, area, perimeter, surface area and more.
