Using blocks and NPCs send your students into this map to solve increasingly difficult multiplication problems using arrays. A simple short project.
October 2, 2018
Minecraft Education Edition map of arrays. 10 problems for your students to do to practice arrays.
Some students struggle to learn how to multiply. Using arrays it is easier for the student to visualize the equation and how to easily arrive at the answer. Using the efficient and colorful blocks in Minecraft create arrays to help solve single digit and double digit multiplication problems. NPCs guide the student through a simple map to solve increasingly difficult equations using arrays and the Distributive Property of multiplication. To assist the student the NPCs provide a link to a helpful video which demonstrates the Distributive Property. Students have placed a photo of their solution along with the typed equation and answer in their portfolio. The portfolio can be exported and sent to the teacher for review.
You will spawn before a sign with student directions. Their first stop is Janie and she gives the student a camera and portfolio and tells them what is expected. She also tells the student the name of the next NPC. There are 10 NPCs altogether who have problems for the student to solve. Each time the student solves a problem he/she will take a photo and under the photo in the portfolio type out the equation and answer. After all 10 problems have been solved, the student can export their portfolio and send it to their teacher for review.
Each student is expected to complete each problem and fill out their portfolio. Along the way, as the problems get more difficult they are invited to watch a video explaining the Distributive Property of Multiplication. As demonstrated in the video the array is divided into 2 groups to make solving simpler. When doing these problems the student is expected to use a fence of some variety to separate the 2 groups and show this in the work they put in their portfolio to demonstrate an understanding of the Distributive Property of Multiplication.
