Learning Outcome: I can my knowledge of area and division to calculate the maximum number of students that could fit in a classroom while "socially distancing". I will know I have been successful when I can: - calculate the area of a room in square metres - use division to calculate the number of students that could fit in the room based on current Government Guidelines In this lesson, you will use the Restricted Activity Directions as outlined by the Victorian Deputy Chief Health Officer, to calculate the maximum number of students that could be in a room at one time. You will need to measure the area of each room in metres and then work out the area in square metres. To work out how many students would be allowed in each room, divide by 4. This is called the Density Quotient. Using the information provided, calculate the following: - The maximum number of students that could be in your bedroom at one time - The maximum number of students that could be in your lounge room at one time - The maximum number of students that could be in your kitchen at one time What would be the possible dimensions of a room to allow your entire class, including your teacher, to be in it at one time based on the information provided? How many possibilities are there? Select to show all your working out and thinking.
This is task based on the Density Quotient outlined in the Restricted Activity Directions (No 5). https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/sites/default/files/documents/202004/state-emergency-directions-restricted-activity-directions-No5-signed-24-04-2020.pdf Possible Maths Concepts - multiplication, division, calculating area, shape properties, measuring in metric units, converting between units
