The teacher recognizes that within a classroom, students have various abilities. Problems offered will range in difficulty level. This class uses content found in typical 5th and 6th-grade math curriculum. The course takes place entirely on the Zoom platform. WE DO NOT PLAY MINECRAFT. Because this class is designed to give students choices and allow for student participation, it may run longer than the scheduled time.

This class is designed to review and reinforce 5th and 6th-grade mathematical concepts. It may also include some logic challenges appropriate for the 5th and 6th-grade classrooms. Specific content may vary depending on the level of the students and the time they take to solve the problems. The teacher has a bank of possible problems and will be adjusting the difficulty level based on the needs of the students and the time constraints of the class as the mystery progresses.
I love teaching math! My own children have enjoyed playing Minecraft, and I know how popular it is with this age set. I also lead and coordinate activities for homeschoolers in my area. As such, I enjoy seeing them work together to solve problems. As a former middle school classroom teacher, I thought creating this mystery would be a fun way to have students interact with each other while having fun solving math problems.
This is a one time class. No homework is assigned.
A working webcam is necessary for interaction and assessing student progress. A whiteboard and dry erase marker are recommended, however paper and a marker may be substituted. Students will need a paper and pencil for calculations. A ruler with standard and metric units should also be available.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The teacher will be checking student understanding throughout the lesson. The teacher will be asking students to show their answers using a whiteboard and dry erase marker. While these materials are suggested, paper and a marker may be substituted. There may also be times when the teacher asks the students to type their answers into the chatbox. Students must have a working webcam to ensure the teacher can check for understanding.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This mystery has a Minecraft setting. The storyline follows the situations a player might find in the game. We will not be playing Minecraft. This is all in the Zoom classroom. A story and pictures are used to move the mystery along. This is a math class that uses a Minecraft theme. Because this class is designed to give students choices and allow for student participation, it may run longer than the scheduled time. This is not an official Minecraft product. It is not approved by or officially associated with Mojang.
