In this lesson, students will create shapes using code and then determine the number of cubic units that combined shapes would make. 11-12 yrs old, Math, Volume, Cubic Units. Game/Play STEM Project-Based courses Minecraft NGSS
Play with the parameters such as height, width, and amount of lava to predict and test the effects of different sized volcanoes on the earth around it.
Common Core Standards
Recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures and understand concepts of volume measurement. Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units. Relate volume to the operations of multiplication and addition and solve real world and mathematical problems involving volume.
This activity requires students to have Code Connection open and running with their Minecraft Education Edition.
This activity consists of 2 parts:
Create 3D Quadrilaterals.
Determine the Volume of Combined Quadrilaterals.
