Extend and Vary the Lesson Make an actual diagram of the NCAA basketball court. • Make a model of another NCAA sports court using standard English measures. Have students recommend different scale factors they might use and then discuss which of these might be the best choice. Visit to locate various NCAA playing surfaces. Invite an architect, a blueprint maker or a surveyor to the class to talk about their careers and tell students about the math they use in their work. • Compute the areas and perimeters of different sections of the court using actual measures of the court. Compute the distance of the court from the surrounding walls and make a three- dimensional model of the court. References Benson, M., ed. 2001.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
