Ss Make Model Robots To Show Their Understanding of Mass #Maths #education #aussieED #globaledchat

Finding an interesting way to teach Mass can be challenging. Ove the past years I have loved running a maths investigation where students have to use, recycled food boxes to build a robot.

The trick is that the robot mass must total 3Kg. Students use the weights on the boxes as their indication of how to track to their total of 3Kgs.

What a fabulous few days that saw the class absolutely engaged in their hands on learning.
