Learning Objectives

  • Common Core Standard 4.NBT.A.2 www.corestandards.org/Math/Content/4/NBT/A/2/ Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.

Guiding Ideas

1) How do I read base 10 numbers in Minecraft?

2) What strategies can you use to make comparing numbers easy?

 

Student Activities

NOTE: The Level Hub is located at 2 6 208 to get there type /tp @a 2 6 208

Level 1 Dropper and Reading Base 10 Numbers

Once the students are in the world they will encounter Mark Bigglesworth Game Show Host who will ask them if they want to start the dropper or watch the tutorial on how to read base 10 number is Minecraft. After they survive the dropper they will find 4 Minecraft math models of base 10 numbers. NOTE: If students are finding the dropper too difficult you can use the /tp @a 24 6 -34 command to teleport everyone to the next area). Students will read these numbers, document three Minecraft math models with pictures, and answer the problem in the NPC.

Students will take notes on the video and in game math models in their math notebooks.
