Handouts Presentation #72, Heigre & Pruett, The Architecture of Thomas Jefferson- Integrating Math, Science and History.pdf


We use Jefferson’s drawings as a springboard into our interdisciplinary curriculum that combines geometry, environmental science, and U.S. history. The lessons ask students to analyze the geometry present in classic architecture, relate it to familiar structures, and take a Google Earth tour of some of the first buildings to dot the colonial landscape.
