Blue Prints

These are our kite blue prints made in Mrs. Nelson's 4th Period Math class. We have made to copies of the kite, the one on the left is what the decorations will look like. We will have the word "Swag" in the middle with a basketball. The one on the right is the same one but has the measurements with the kite being 3x3 ft. Finnaly, the tail with the stars is 2 ft or 60.96 inches.


Here is some history about the diamond kite which is the kind of kite that my group will be creating; The diamond kite is probably the most popular kite, mostly because of its simple structure. The diamond kite has as simple formation of two sticks forming a cross, one vertically and one horizonally. The diamond can be in many different sizes and still fly! For example, if you made a diamond that was the size of the hand then you can fly it with a simple thread. Many diamond kites are made as a smaller versions of bigger kites. As all kites, the diamond kite has the obvious, sail and bridle. Diamond kites were first popular in Europe, mostly for meteorological and radio range proposes. Although they were popular for some time their popularity changed mainly three times; for recreational proposes in the 1600's, more serios proposes in the mid 1700's to early 1900's and finally back to recational in the early 1900's.

How did making a model help make the finished product?

Making a model in Math class help us to make the finished product in Science because we had an idea of what we were doing. Without the model, we wouldn't have know the steps into building a type of kite. For example, my group made the diamond kite, in math, we did make this type of kite. So when it was time for us to make it in Science, we knew what we had to do step by step.

Finding Surface Area of Our Diamond KIte

Problem Number Three

The answer to problem number three is 7.5. Each member has to do 7.5 shifts of 3 hours in order for the group to get 180 hours and 17 minutes. When 8 member do 7.5 shifts or 22.5 hours, then they meet their goal.

Problem Number One

The answer to number one is 30 miles per hour. the carriage went 60 miles in two if you divide each number in half then you get 30 over 1.
