Part 1: Town Map
You will design and draw a town map that incorporates many key geometric concepts.
The project should fit on an 8 1⁄2 by 11 piece of paper. It can be drawn by hand or done on the computer or a combination of both. Feel free to use as much color as you like.
Your town map must include a title of your town and elements (labeled with numbers) that meet the following requirements. You can add any other elements to your map that you like. However, 1 – 20 must be included and clearly labeled on your map.
1a – 1b 
Two streets parallel to each other 
2 
A diagonal street that is a transversal to the parallel streets 
3a – 3b 
Two coffee shops that are located within corresponding angles 
4a – 4b 
Two gas stations that are located within alternate interior angles 
5a – 5b 
Two grocery stores that are located within alternate exterior angles 
6a – 6b 
Two streets perpendicular to each other 
7 
A street that is a ray 
8 
A street that is a line segment 
9 
A roundabout in the midpoint of a line segment 
10 
A path or bridge that connect two complementary angles 
11 
A path or bridge that connect two supplementary angles

12a – 12b 
Two parks at vertical angles to each other 
13 
A hospital in the shape of a parallelogram and place in the interior of a right angle 
14 
A school in the shape of a trapezoid that is placed in an obtuse angle 
15 
A post office in the shape of a rhombus located in an acute angle 
16 
A courthouse in the shape of a pentagon located at a right angle 
17a – 17b – 17c 
Three swimming pools in the shape of triangles: 1 scalene; 1 isosceles; 1 equilateral 
18 
A hexagonal building

19 
An octagonal building 
20 
A cylindrical sandbox inside one of the parks 
Part 2: Calculations of Volume and Surface Area
Compute how much sand, water, or paint is necessary for each of the elements below. Show all work.

1) Fill two of the pools with water. Each pool will be filled to a depth of 5 feet. The other necessary dimensions are given below.

The isosceles triangle pool: height 20ft and base 35ft

The equilateral triangle pool: height 52ft and base 60ft


2) The sandbox must be filled with sand. The sandbox has a depth of 2ft and a diameter of 14ft.

3) The exterior walls of the regular pentagon shaped courthouse must be painted. Each wall of the courthouse is 80ft by 18ft.
Part 3: Impact Question
Provide an example, or examples, of how the concepts covered in this project could be applied in life or future career choices other than in city planning or map making.
