Description: Explore with your students in this year’s Computer Science Education Week, an activity around building roads in a city in Minecraft. Explore mathematical concepts as students build their road to survival. Students will use Minecraft: Education Edition to write equations to figure out how many blocks they will need to construct roads and more!  

Objectives:  

-Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols.
-Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. 
-Convert among different-sized standard measurement units within a given measurement system and use these conversions in solving multi-step, real-world problems.
-Generate two numerical patterns using two given rules. Identify apparent relationships between corresponding terms. Form ordered pairs consisting of corresponding terms from the two patterns, and graph the ordered pairs on a coordinate plane.

    Description: Explore with your students in this year’s Computer Science Education Week an activity around building structures with MakeCode and Math. Students will put their coding skills to the test in this project-based learning activity by solving math problems in order to build their structure on iPad. Students will then enhance their skills by using MakeCode to code the agent to help build their structure using coding fundamentals such as sequences, loops and more. Students will also use iPad’s accessibility features as they dive into the Minecraft world along with gaining tips and tricks in easily sharing portfolios for assessment.

    Objectives: 
    -Through project-based learning, solve Math problems to find the size of the build using iPad's
    -Explain how answers to Math problems were achieved 
    -Code with MakeCode to craft specific areas of the build
    -Learn how to code using the fundamental concepts of sequences and loops in MakeCode
    -Gain insight on iPad’s accessibility and assessment features in Minecraft

    Description: Explore with your students in this year’s Computer Science Education Week, an activity around using math to learn about different rocks and minerals. Explore the world of Rocklandia with the help of three scientists visiting from the Royal Ontario Museum. Through Coding, Math and Science, learn more about the different rocks and minerals as students reflect their learning in inclusive ways. 

    Objectives: 
    Make observations and gather information about igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks and minerals
    Use consecutive, concurrent, repeated and nested coding to overcome a series of obstacles
    Create a museum of rocks and minerals to reflect their learning, with an emphasis on inclusivity and accessibility

    Description: Explore with your students in this year’s Computer Science Education Week an activity around building and crafting in space with MakeCode. Students will put their coding skills to the test as they follow coding instructions to solve puzzles in space. Using Minecraft’s Agent, students will be able to collect samples from planets in space while learning coding concepts in MakeCode such as while loops, “agent inspect”, “agent detect”, if/else conditional statements and more.  

    Objectives: 
    Learn how to develop a plan that describe a sequence of events, goals and expected outcomes of coding
    Decompose (break down) problems into smaller, manageable subproblems to help in the program development process
    Follow coding instructions to solve puzzles in space
    Code a program that includes sequences, events, loops and conditionals

    Description: Explore with your students in this year’s Computer Science Education Week, an activity around using math to build a home. Explore how to design a prototype of a house by calculating the area and perimeter of it before it is built. Students will use their mathematical skills to determine the areas found in a house using multiplication and unknown factors. 

    Objectives: 
    -Apply the concepts of the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in the real world and through mathematical problems
    -Determine the width of a rectangular room given the area of the following and the length by viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an unknown factor
    -Design a prototype of a house and calculate its area and perimeter including different rooms within the house
