Surface Area Assignment
Here is a word document of the assignment.
What is surface area?
How do you calculate surface area?
What formulas can you create for surface area?
1) Using Minecraft Creative Mode create the following:
a) a shelter with a flat roof of your size(make a door but pretend that it is part of the blocks when calculating surface area )
b) a pyramid of your size (don’t make it too big)
c) any structure with a surface area of 25 m2
d) any structure with a surface area of 50 m2
2. After you complete each structure, you are to take a screenshot (use print screen which copies them)
3. Then go to sway or power point and make a card/slide deck with your images and your math.
4.Share me the sway/ power point when done.
Structure One - 1 2 3 4
Structure Two - 1 2 3 4
Structure Three - 1 2 3 4
Structure Four- 1 2 3 4
Each structure must have screenshot and math!
