Associated Engage NY module and lesson.
1) What kind of data can we find in games?
2) How can we track data?
3) What is a line plot graph?
4) How do you graph fractions on a line plot graph?
5) What strategies can I use to add fractions quickly?
Students will enter the Javelin Line Plot world in groups of three and watch the how to play video.
To play the game each player will throw 5 javelins and their scores will be tracked on a line plot graph. There will be a 2 javelin bonus hit a student hits the 1 score and a 2 point penalty if the student hits the 2 score. To get a students final score add up all the score that are less than 2 and then subtract how many point they have in the 2’s column of the line plot graph. There is a video to help students with the math inside the NPC.
In game jobs
1) The Thrower-Stands at the start of the track and throws the javelins.
2) The Caller-Stands on the track and tells the other players where the javelin landed.
3) The Plotter-Stands in the scoring area and tracks the scores on a Minecraft line plot graph.
Minecraft Line Plot Graph
There will be a worksheet attached to the lesson each student will need three worksheets to track all the players in their group’s scores. Make sure to have the students document their work by sending a file from the structure block.
1) The student was able to collect data by throwing javelins on a score track.
2) The student was able to track and interpret data on a line plot graph.
3) The student was able add and subtract mixed numbers with different denominators.
