Chapter 4: Measurement
Designing Park Structures
Park structures such as skateboard ramps and tree houses need to be structurally sound and built to withstand years of use. Their supports and surfaces need to be carefully designed to ensure users’ safety. The environment such as the health of trees also needs to be considered. Park designers exercise their creativity when planning parks.
Imagine that you have been hired to design park structures. You can choose between two types of structures for this task:
Use only rectangular prisms, triangular prisms, and cylinders for the structure you choose to create.
Answer questions 1 to 6 for a skateboard park or questions 7 to 12 for a tree house. Then, for either choice, answer questions 13 and 14.
