This Monday is the first day of Land Planning and Development for my class this semester. Leading up to it, I've been searching for more interactive and collaborative teaching tools.
I was especially excited when I ran across a good teaching resource for a topic that is often a bit difficult to explain well: density.
That's right, whether its FAR, Lot Coverage, or another measure, the topic of density is a big one for land use that often is somewhat elusive in its accuracy of explanation (maybe because it involves math?!?).
As a result, I found this website, Visualizing Density, offers some excellent resources for successfully explaining and teaching the topic of density in a development context.
