Minecraft Maths!

Over the last two weeks in maths, we have learnt about area, perimeter and volume. As a post-test, we had to complete a task in Minecraft. It was only meant to go for one hour, but because we loved it so much, and because we were working so hard, Rebecca made it harder and gave us more time to complete it.

We were given several aims to complete. Some examples are building a structure with a perimeter of 50 metres squared, building a structure that was a compound shape and finding the volume of a building we had already created. It was much more exciting than a worksheet!

Here are some images of one of the world’s we have been working on:
