Overview

This simulation is uniquely appropriate for STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) initiatives. And it's great fun!

Students will use algebraic thinking, data analysis and the engineering design process to solve problems in real-world settings.

In Building Math for Common Core State Standards: Stranded!, students are marooned on a desert island, where they must identify their location, build shelter, distill water, and learn how to load and provision small canoes.

Students will conduct mathematics investigations including

Using proportional reasoning to calculate actual distance and drawn distance on a map according to a scale

Identify corresponding dimension of similar objects.

Finding the area of an irregular two-dimensional shape using strategies for finding the areas of triangles, rectangles, and parallelograms.

Calculating the surface area and volume of three-dimensional objects.

Making and testing conjectures about the relationship between surface
