Chapter 6 Performance Assessment

You are going to visit your Aunt Bea who lives in a town where you have never been. You would like to get an idea of the layout of her area of town. Aunt Bea gives you the following description in a telephone conversation. Maple and Fir Streets are one block apart and run parallel to each other in the east and west directions. Washington and Jackson Streets are one block apart, parallel to each other, and perpendicular to Maple and Fir Streets. The Crosstown Expressway forms a 30 degree angle with Fir Street between Jackson and Washington Streets. 1. Following Aunt Beas description, draw a map of her area of town. Label all streets.

2. Aunt Bea lives at the corner of Jackson and Fir Streets. She lives on the corner that is closest to Maple Street but not closest to the Expressway. Place a star where Aunt Beas house is located. Across Fir Street from Aunt Beas house is a park shaped like an isosceles right triangle. Add the park to your map. 3. Compare your map with another person who followed the same directions. What are some differences that you notice? What additional instructions could Aunt Bea have included to insure that only one version of the map is correct?
