Becoming a survival expert


In this 3 hour introductory module, learners imagine themselves as an adventurer who's taken an emergency landing in the Indian Ocean. Luckily there is a deserted island close by and they’ve managed to make a raft, but the waves are rough and it is important that they pack wisely. Only an understanding of mass and area can save them! This module practices calculating the area of a square and rectangle, and challenges students to code a game to see if their raft will stay afloat!
