Unit 4 Mathematics Connections

Minecraft and problem solving.

In a series of initial lessons I would work with students of a year 6 level focusing on algebraic equations, word problems and coordinates.

As a follow on from their base knowledge I would create a quest in Minecraft education where students are to work in a small group of 2-3 people to solve a series of  algebraic equations , answering questions x, y and z. These answers will give them the 3 coordinates that they can enter in the coding chat tab. This will lead them to the next location with a new set of x,y and z questions. After a minimum of 3 steps your students will end up at the end of the quest with a record of their answers.

To further this task, students could create a set of equations for another peer group to solve and participate in.
