A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… a new set of Jedi Trainees have been brought under the tutelage of heroes of yesteryear. Although it is often unspoken, one of the secrets to mastering “the Force” is a concrete understanding of trigonometry. It turns out that the mental acuity required in a Jedi means that they must compute a variety of measurement problems that help them understand how important it is to be precise!
Let Measurement and Star Wars collide in this adventure 21st Century Math Project!
In this 22 page document you will be given a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, and handout resources for students to use.
-- In “Jedi Academy”, students will use a ruler to measure and solve a variety of problems.
-- In “Use the Force”, students will complete a variety of more challenging measurements problems that culminate in a face off against Darth Vader. This work can be done in teams or individually.
-- In “Jedi Master”, students will construct their own measurement problem and share it’s solution. As an extension, students can share their solution on an audio or video recording that explains the steps to complete the challenge.
