SYLLABUS: Do you like to build models? Do you want to learn about the Great Pyramids? Then this fun and hands on class would be great for you! Thousands of years ago, the ancient Egyptians built the three pyramids of Giza for each of the three pharaohs- Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure.

In this class, students will learn about the different structures that were built and how mathematically they were constructed. Then, in groups, students will apply their math skills to build the three pyramids to scale.
