Career Clusters 2017-01-19T19:50:18-05:00

There are 16 career clusters leading to various career pathways. Instructors can incorporate these clusters into curriculum design and instruction. Adult education services will include workforce preparation activities and training for specific occupations; this will allow students to achieve their educational and career goals.

Lesson Title Profit and Growth
Unit Title Event Planning on a Budget
NRS Level Level 4
Length of Lesson 120 minutes
Lesson Purpose

Students will understand and apply scale, similar shapes, and proportional reasoning forming a bridge between scale drawings and real objects.

Students will use the skill learned to plan events by dividing the space to be used appropriately, and by knowing how many tables and chairs are to be used based on the number of individuals attending the planned event.

Scale drawing will assist students in preparing ahead designing the space to be used. Because of understanding scale drawing, students can know exactly how many tables and chairs can be placed in a given space.

Scale drawing is a visual representation of the space.

Lesson Objectives

At the end of this lesson, students will be able to:

Make scale drawings for the professional workplace calculating scales and recognizing similar shapes. Scale drawing, measurements and proportional reasoning, will allow students to effectively use the space to organize events.  

Student Target

I can calculate scale, make a scale drawing, and recognize similar shapes.

CCR Focus Standards
Geometry - Level D
  • Solve problems involving scale drawings of geometric figures, including computing actual lengths and areas from a scale drawing and reproducing a scale drawing at a different scale. [Also see 7.RP.3]

  • Understand that a two-dimensional figure is similar to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, translations, and dilations; given two similar two- dimensional figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the similarity between them.

Supporting Standards
  • Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, volume and surface area of two- and three-dimensional objects composed of triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, cubes, and right prisms.

Standards for Mathematical Practice
  • Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. (MP.1)

  • Model with mathematics. (MP.4)

  • Use appropriate tools strategically. (MP.5)

KYAE Employability Standards
  • E.6 Identify and effectively use skills and materials needed for a particular task.

  • E.7 Accurately analyze information and respond appropriately.
