Oil Spill Project: (Math)


Total area of oil spill: 19,586.25 mi2

How I approached this project is I broke it down, step, by step. I was finding individual area of shapes I drew in the big shape. Then I adding it all up.


#1- When I took a second look at my sectioned polygons I believe that my area was close to the exact measurement of actual shapes. Are they exact probably not, but I believe that they are pretty close.

#2- I expect my area to be more than the actual area. All the twist and turns really threw me off, because all I was doing was pretending that they were strait lines.
