Reroofing Your Uncle's House

In this interactive activity adapted from the Wisconsin Online Resource Center, use mathematics and measuring skills to solve a construction problem. Play a game using tools (including a tape measure, notepad, and calculator) to determine how many shingles are needed to reroof a house. Learn about the importance of proper planning and how miscalculating the amount of materials needed can add to the cost and time spent on a project.

This media asset was adapted from "My Uncle's House" by WISCONLINE.
