Your parents want to put new carpet and a baseboard in their bedroom.
However, they need to know how much carpet and baseboard to order. Since
you are taking a geometry class this semester, your parents ask you to
give them a hand. Your job is to make a set of directions for your parents
to follow. You then need to follow those directions, and calculate how
much carpet and baseboard your parents will need.
The students will be assessed on the following items.
1) Logical flow of directions
2) Arrangement of proportions
3) Accuracy of calculations
4) Organization of work
