Description
  • This maps plays best in MCEdu mode, and student building disallowed.
  • Students will work individually, in partners, and in teams.
  • Special thanks to Mike Harvey for the bar graphing inspiration.
  • EduCrew for helping with increasing the scientific value of the Axe Efficiency Lesson.
Standards

Skills/Standards:

3.MD.3 - Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories. Solve one- and two-step “how many more” and “how many less” problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs.

4.MD.4 - Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions by using information presented in line plots.

5.MD.2 - Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Use operations on fractions for this grade to solve problems involving information presented in line plots.

6.SP.4 - Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots.

ISTE Standard 2 - Communication and Collaboration

Students use digital media and environments to communicate and work collaboratively, including at a distance, to support individual learning and contribute to the learning of others. 

ISTE Standard 5 - Digital Citizenship

Students understand human, cultural, and societal issues related to technology and practice legal and ethical behavior

Nice work, Mr. A! I've been looking forward to seeing this world.

Hi Mister A, I'm a newbie with MCedu and I'm using The Graphing Zone as my first world to run around in and learn. I was wondering if there is a lesson plan or a "teacher's guide" somewhere that I can download. I can sort of figure out what's going on, and I realize I'm free to use my own plan. It would just speed things up to know how you used it. -thanks

Hey Patrick... I have to apologize, this answer is probably way too late now, but maybe it will help others. Currently the map is setup to work as three separate lessons, or as a unit. 1. Fishing Tournament / Pictographs 2. Archery Tournament / Fractions and Line Plots 3. Efficiency of Axes / Bar, Double Bar, and well...30+ Bars Each of the lessons has a section for practicing the MC skills they will need (crafting a fishing rod, learning to build towers, and practice targets) to complete the graphing activity. Each section has a floating "timer" in the sky. The signs should help you setup the timer and use the level to start it. There are also buttons to give and clear inventories each time, allowing the experience to be untainted by other items. Hope that helps, if not please let me know. Head over to the MinecraftEdu Google Group and find me there. MisterA
