# CTE Resource Center - Verso - Agricultural Production Technology Task 492197603

# Collect and apply data in the development of a map.

## Definition

Collection and application of data should include
• plotting points
• determining distance
• calculating area, using given points at a location.

## Process/Skill Questions

• What is the procedure for developing a map of a given area?
• How is area calculated?

## Mathematics

### G.3

The student will solve problems involving symmetry and transformation. This will include
1. investigating and using formulas for determining distance, midpoint, and slope;
2. applying slope to verify and determine whether lines are parallel or perpendicular;
3. investigating symmetry and determining whether a figure is symmetric with respect to a line or a point; and
4. determining whether a figure has been translated, reflected, rotated, or dilated, using coordinate methods.

### G.14

The student will apply the concepts of similarity to two- or three-dimensional geometric figures. This will include
1. comparing ratios between lengths, perimeters, areas, and volumes of similar figures;
2. determining how changes in one or more dimensions of a figure affect area and/or volume of the figure;
3. determining how changes in area and/or volume of a figure affect one or more dimensions of the figure; and
4. solving problems, including practical problems, about similar geometric figures.
