In this unit, students will apply their knowledge of transversal/parallel relationships to the construction of a truss bridge. This bridge will be constructed out of popsicle sticks and hot glue and will need to support as much weight as possible. Students will also need to sketch cross sections of the bridge; identifying special angles created by a transversal intersecting a pair of parallel lines and similar triangles.
