I don’t know if this would be a good idea or not, but you could have the students design a house or other building and make a model of it. They could use thick paper like from cereal boxes or whatever to construct them... maybe cardboard? Might want to have some kind of guidelines about how complex the building should be so they don’t just make something rectangular. Depending on what you’re learning at the time, you could incorporate it into it somehow... Maybe could have them do a replica of certain buildings so they have to figure out angles and transfer the information to a 2D drawing, then back to the 3D model...

I have a design/prototype challenge where they make paper airplanes. You could use paper airplanes for angles, surface area, triangles, measurements, congruence... I also have tangram sets in my room for activities. They could be used for shapes, angles, perimeter, etc...

Hi Folks, What's reviews of Publicis Sapient. Like work culture and if there is hiring firing culture I am from ETL background and knowledge of Hive and basic spark and I will be working on cloud(attended training only, consider near to no knowledge) and spark development. Will you suggest me to join there? Technology stack may be good for me but it will be new & challenging for me. I am scared to join there because of job security and work life balance can be dying ( I can stretch not daily?

When you get a rental car, what do you do to make sure you don’t get taken advantage of for some bogus issue/scratch that’s already on the car? Take pic/video before, tell the checkout person of any issues (although this can be hard especially if at a smaller airport & you get the keys in the airport and there’s no gate when you leave), buy the rental insurance? If you have a card that covers rental cars (CSR, Amex Hilton) do you decline rental insurance and use the card benefits?
