Mr. Pitonyak's Pyramid Puzzle
What would an Egyptian pyramid cost to build today? During this project you will be asked to estimate the cost of building a pyramid using modern materials and ancient methods. In teams you will plan, collect data, submit a bid for the job (only the lowest bidding company will be awarded the job), create a scale drawing and model, and present a final report to the class. Remember to use all of your knowledge learned this year in math, science, and social studies to complete this project. Finally, the results will be included in a World Wide Web page about the project!!!
