Minecraft Scale, Measurement and Ratio.
Past students have struggled grasping measurement, scale and ratio I decide to get minecraft in and utilise our students love for this block world. Student selected a moment or place that they researched dimension then calculated the scale required then set about making the on their iPads. Some of my students not only mastered the converting scale, ratio and measurement but madeamzing replicas of the white house, Perth arena, liverpool stadium and Perth Airport with some impressive custom made textile panels.
