About the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Mathematics are organized by grade level in grades K 8. At the high school level, the standards are organized by conceptual category (number and quantity, algebra, functions, geometry, and probability and statistics), showing the body of knowledge students should learn in each category to be college and career ready, and to be prepared to study more advanced mathematics. The Standards for Mathematical Practice describe ways in which developing student practitioners of the discipline of mathematics increasingly ought to engage with the subject matter as they grow in mathematical maturity and expertise throughout the elementary, middle and high school years. About the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts/Literacy The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for ELA/Literacy are organized by grade level in grades K 8. At the high school level, the standards are organized by 910 and grade bands. Across K12 there are four major strands: Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening, and Language. The CCSS also include Standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects, with contentspecific (Reading and Writing) literacy standards provided for grades 68, 910, and 1112, to demonstrate that literacy needs to be taught and nurtured across all subjects. About the Career Cluster Knowledge and Skill Statements As an organizing tool for curriculum design and instruction, Career Clusters provide the essential knowledge and skills for the 16 Career Clusters and their Career Pathways. It also functions as a useful guide in developing programs of study bridging secondary and postsecondary curriculum and for creating individual student plans of study for a complete range of career options. As such, it helps students discover their interests and their passions, and empowers them to choose the educational pathway that can lead to success in high school, college and career. Although not included in this template, all Clusters and Pathways have Foundational Academic Expectations and Essential Knowledge & Skills Statements, which, in some cases, overlap with the Common Core State Standards. Golf hole Cup Bank shot Bank angle, angle of approach Tee box KEY TERMS 2
3 MINIATURE GOLF The Task The local miniature golf course would like to increase their profits by increasing the difficulty and number of holes in the course. The owners believe players will like being able to play more holes for their money and then may spend more at the concession stand. In order to find designs for three new holes, they have decided to hold a design contest. Each design will be judged on the most creative use of materials, the least likelihood that someone will score a holeinone, and the best use of the available space. The contest requires documentation of your design, including a scale drawing of the design with dimensions, all of your calculations, and a report to the owners that explains your design. Tasks: 1. Sketch a miniature golf hole design including any obstacles or general items required. The designed hole must fit within a rectangle of no more than 128 square feet of area. Draw your design to scale, using appropriate tools, and include all measurements. Make sure your dimensions will allow for a player to comfortably approach the ball within the golf hole area. Identify the cup, the tee box, obstacles, and all angles of approach. For purposes of computing area, your design should be composed of twodimensional shapes for which you can find the area. 2. Show that your design will fit within a rectangle of dimensions that meet the 128 sq ft specification. Be sure to use as much of the area as possible, while still maintaining a creative design. 3. Calculate the total area of your golf hole design and the percentage of this total area you have used. Show all your work. (Remember: You will be judged partially on the best use of space.) 4. Research and describe the regulation size for a golf cup for consideration and placement in your design. 5. Identify and sketch two possible paths from tee to cup, with at least one path being a bank shot. Explain the possible approaches and show and calculate all angles associated with your bank shot(s). 6. Write a report to submit with your design to explain why yours should be selected. Include information regarding the creativity of your design, the level of difficulty, and the best use of available space. 3
4 MINIATURE GOLF Possible Solution(s) 1. The design: (Scale: one unit = 6 inches) 2. The total design fits inside a rectangle that is 11 x 11 6, for a total of square feet: 11 x 11 6 = 11 x 11.5 = square feet This is less than the maximum by 1.5 square feet. 3. Calculate the area: The total used area can be most easily calculated by subtracting the unused area from the total: Total rectangle area: square feet 4
5 The unused area includes three right triangles and one rectangle (shaded in this version of the design). The rectangle is 2 6 by 5, two triangles have legs of 3 and 5, and the third triangle has legs of 3 and 6. Total unused area: 2.5 x 5 + 2[0.5(3 x 5 )] + 0.5(3 x 6 ) = = 36.5 square feet of unused space = 90 square feet of used space = This is approximately 71% of the total space. 4. According to the USGA the regulation golf cup measures 4.25 inches in diameter. Since this design drawing has one unit equal to 6 inches, the cup will fit easily into one square on the grid. 5. There are two possible shots shown on this sample version of the design. In #1 (dark green line) the goal will be to hit the ball with the best possible speed to stop as close to the center of point 1 as possible. This plan is not a bank shot and may be accomplished in as few as two shots total. In #2 (blue line) the ball will bank off the far wall of the hole and enter the hole. This shot is daring and hopes for a holeinone. This can happen only if the bank angles are the same measure, ma = mb in this version of the design. ma can be found by using the right triangle formed with the distance from the bank point to the hole as the hypotenuse. Using the scale in the design of one unit = 6 inches, the triangle legs will measure 36 (six full units) and 93 (15.5 units). The base angle, angle a, will have a tangent of 93/36. So ma = or approximately 69. Since both a and b have measures of 69, the angle at the bank point (2) would be 180 2(69) = Reports will vary based on the individual designs. 5
6 MINIATURE GOLF Possible Extensions The extensions below represent potential ways in which mathematics and/or CTE teachers can build on the task above. All of the extensions are optional and can be used in the classroom, as homework assignments, and/or as longterm interdisciplinary projects. 1. Consider possible placement options for the cup and propose two alternative locations, providing three total cup sites. Discuss the implications that each cup position has on the level of difficulty and recommend one cup site. 2. Focus Group Study: Select the favorite three designs of the class and present them to a random sample of people to collect data on the preferred design. Compile, graph, analyze, and compare the data and summary statistics based demographics, such as gender, age, and golf experience. 3. Create a project plan to complete the hole. Include local pricing for materials and total cost. 4. Create a threedimensional sketch of the hole (e.g., using Google Sketchup). Create (and draw) components of the hole that reflect its theme that you have determined with art students from your school. 6

They must make conjectures about the form and meaning of the solution and plan a solution pathway. They must check the reasonableness of their solution, continually asking themselves, Does this make sense? This task involves quantitative relationships. It requires that students make sense of quantities and their relationships in the problem situation. They must attend to the meaning of the quantities and pay attention to units as they represent the quantities and measures in the design, work, and their report. Students must present their design with a written report describing their findings. There is no requirement to critique the reasoning of others This task is an application from everyday life requiring that the student create a geometric representation (model) that can replace the situation described in the prompt. Students must identify important quantities in the practical situation and use them to answer the questions posed. Students are required to explain their decisions and assumptions. Students are directed to use appropriate tools in their design. They may use drafting tools, CAD programs, or other software. This task requires that students communicate precisely, organizing their information, as they perform their calculations and show their mathematical thinking. Task Comments (Strengths, weaknesses, possible improvements, effectiveness, etc) This is a multistage problem with real life applications and considerations. Students must identify measurements and lengths to make sure their design meets the specifications. They must use both abstract reasoning and quantitative calculations. 8
