Mat and the chickens

In the course, students must work across the main areas of mathematics. They have to build a hen house, buy and look after chickens, and with the help of simple calculations assess whether they should, for example, sell eggs or whether they should let the eggs turn into chickens. They work with problem solving and modeling in everyday situations, and build spatial figures using a digital tool while communicating with their group and calculating solutions.

The scenario consists of 3 modules. Duration: 4-8 lessons.

Module 1: Presentation of the map
Module 2: Math with chickens
Module 3: Present
