Students Use Math To Create RC Racetrack City

OPMS students in Mr. Bischof's class built a 1:64 scale city and racetrack for their RC race cars in math class. Students chose landmarks to create and build as a part of the track. They used their knowledge of proportions, scale, geometry, and measurement to take real-world dimensions and scale them down to the size of their RC race cars. Once the models were complete, students were able to drive the RC cars through the racetrack. They had a view from the driver seat of the car with cameras that snap onto the cars and augmented reality goggles!
