Students will have to use knowledge about scaling and comparing ratios, as well as figuring circumference of circles as they fight to stop the zombie apocalypse in this math story project. This math story includes a video launch, to "hook" your students. Rather than a traditional story problem or project, all information comes to students in the form of the video introduction, and "memos" and reports from the CDC about preventing a zombie outbreak. Students take on the role of CDC workers who must determine appropriate medication dosages based on ratios. Students also must figure the resources needed to form a perimeter at a given radius.
A detailed teacher's guide tells you exactly how to implement this math story that will keep your students engaged for every part. This resource also includes a topic review worksheet that can provide a short review of all content needed to successfully complete this project.
