# Building Homes of Our Own

##### Building Homes of Our Own

Building Homes of Our Own lets students collect information, solve problems, and make real-world choices as "virtual" builders.

• Use tools and resources to select a lot, build a sound home, and sell your home to the best qualified buyer.
• Students encounter real-life situations
• Three game phases (site,house,sale).
• Three levels of play (Urban/Suburban,Rivers and Lakes, Coastlines).
• Available resources include research, planning, community, and experts.
• Write ads, review credit applications and sell to the buyer of choice.

A comprehensive Teacher's Guide, with lesson plans and discussion topics, is included on the CD.

The program is part of the National Association of Home Builders' (NAHB) ongoing educational outreach initiative. It was produced in partnership with the National Endowment and Freddie Mac, whose support made this program possible.

# Math Limerick

Question: Why is this a mathematical limerick?

( (12 + 144 + 20 + 3 Sqrt[4]) / 7 ) + 5*11 = 92 + 0 .

A dozen, a gross, and a score,
plus three times the square root of four, divided by seven, plus five times eleven, is nine squared and not a bit more.

---Jon Saxton (math textbook author)

Presentation Suggestions:
Challenge students to invent their own math limerick!

The Math Behind the Fact:
It is fun to mix mathematics with poetry.
