J. César Bárcena Sánchez M. Teresa Martín Gómez

INTRODUCCIÓN

La actividad MATHS IN PLASENCIA, nace del trabajo colaborativo de dos profesores de la sección bilingüe del IES Sierra de Santa Bárbara, que trabajando dentro de una metodología AICLE, pretendemos por un lado hacer a los alumnos protagonistas de su propio aprendizaje y por otro buscar espacios de trabajo interdisciplinares donde el estudio y desarrollo de una segunda lengua extranjera cobre realmente un sentido práctico. La idea de MATHS IN PLASENCIA nace dentro del seno del proyecto europeo ITEC, que pretende poner en marcha escenarios de aprendizaje para las aulas del futuro, introduciendo importantes transformaciones metodológicas de la educación y el uso de nuevas herramientas tecnológicas. El trabajo ha sido elaborado por los alumnos del 1º de ESO de la sección bilingüe del IES Sierra de Santa Bárbara junto a los profesores de inglés y matemáticas del mismo. El objetivos de MATHS IN PLASENCIA es la de crear un juego, a modo de gymkana matemática, donde se presentan diversos problemas matemáticos REALES, que deben ser resueltos en su propio entorno. Uno de los atractivos más importantes de la actividad es que dicho juego ha sido elaborado al 100% por los alumnos de 1º de ESO del IES Sierra de Santa Bárbara, con el objeto de ser puesto en marcha, no por ellos mismos, sino por los alumnos de 6º de primaria del colegio San Miguel Arcángel de Plasencia, con quienes hasta hace unos meses compartían centro de estudios. Al margen de los objetivos y contenidos puramente académicos, nos ha permitido estrechar los lazos y colaboraciones con el colegio, acercando nuestros profesores, instalaciones y medios a quienes serían nuestros futuros alumnos, relajando lo que en algunos casos supone un traumático paso de una etapa a otra. Gracias a la interacción de alumnos de los dos centros hemos conseguido en parte, suavizar los grandes cambios que para nuestros nuevos alumnos ha supuesto ese cambio. En las siguientes páginas encontrarás las pruebas que se presentan a los grupos, sus soluciones, los recorridos de los diferentes equipos. Tras cada prueba cada equipo recibe una de las letras que forman la palabra CATHEDRAL (palabra secreta y que será el punto final de nuestro viaje). ¡Esperamos que lo disfrutéis tanto como nosotros lo hemos hecho!

QUESTION

How long would it take to fill this fountain if it was empty? Use the empty bottle that we give you.

CLUES

V prism= Abase x height

Aregular.octagon =

Perimeter x apothem 2

Consider the base of the fountain as a regular octagon

ANSWERS

a) 4860 seconds b) 9720 seconds c) 1110 seconds d) 2 minutes

CALCULATIONS

First of all, we measure the side, apothem and height of the fountain: side → s = apothem → a = cm cm height → h = cm

The area of the base is The volume is

Abase =

Perimeter x a = 2

cm3

cm2

V fountain = Abase x height =

The volume in liters is =

Now, we are going to calculate how many liters of water we get form each water supply: Measure the time we need to fill the botle (1 liter) t1 liter = s → So we need the same time to get 4 liters (4 water supplies)

Finally, find out how long would it take to fill the fountain: t = (Vfountain x t4 liters ) : 4 = seconds

QUESTION

How long could a person of 70 Kg survive trapped in an elevator? Supposing there is not any hole to let the air come in.

CLUES

→ One person of 70 kg needs 0,245 liters of oxygen in 1 minute. → Air: 21% of oxygen and 79% of nytrogen.

ANSWERS

a) 45 hours b) 88 hours c) 10 hours d) 53 hours Go to point 9 Go to point 7 Go to point 6 Go to point 7

CALCULATIONS

First of all, we calcullate the volume of the elevator (cuboid). We need to measure the height, width and length: width → w = length → l = cm cm height → h = cm

The volume is

V =w · l · h =

cm3

Now, we convert the volume in liters, dividing by 1000 Velevator = l

Only the 21% of this volume is oxygen:

V oxygen =V elevator x

21 = 100

l

A person of 70 Kg needs 0.245 liters / minute

Dividing both volumes, we get how long could a person survive

t survive=V oxygen : V needed =

min =

hours

We need to measure the height.245 liters / minute Dividing both volumes. dividing by 1000 Velevator = l Only the 21% of this volume is oxygen: V oxygen =V elevator x 21 = 100 l A person of 70 Kg needs 0. we convert the volume in liters. we calcullate the volume of the elevator (cuboid).CALCULATIONS First of all. we get how long could a person survive t survive=V oxygen : V needed = min = hours YOUR ANSWER IS: . width and length: width → w = length → l = cm cm height → h = cm The volume is V =w · l · h = cm3 Now.

Each can contains 5 kg of paint.THE BOLLARDS Avda de la Salle QUESTION We want to paint the bollards that are in the Puerta del Sol and they have a spherical shape. We know that we can paint 5m2 with 1 kg of paint. We have chosen some cans of paint that cost 10 €. How much will it cost to paint all the balls that are on the pavement? CLUES ANSWERS a) 40 € b) 30 € c) 20 € d) 10 € .

we calcullate the surface area of the sphere. We need to measure the radius: radius → r = cm The area is V =4 · π · r 2 = cm2 Now.CALCULATIONS First of all. therefore we will spend euros YOUR ANSWER IS: . we convert the area to cm2 dividing by 10000 A= m2 Now we count the number of bollards we have to paint: So the total area to paint is m2 bollards We need cans.

THE GARDEN QUESTION You have reached the final point of our game. Now we want you to calculate the area of one of the gardens placed in front of the CATHEDRAL. Consider it as a rectangle minus a quarter of a circle CLUES ANSWERS a) 171 m2 b) 103 m2 c) 77 m2 d) 52 m2 .

the area of the quarter of circle Aq.circle = m2 YOUR ANSWER IS: .circle = π xr 4 2 = m2 The final area is the difference of both areas.CALCULATIONS We measure both sides of the rectangle (b and h) and the radius of the quarter of circle. base → b = radius → r = m m height → h = m We start calculating the area of the rectangle: Arectangle =b x h = m2 Now. A garden= Arectangle − Aq.
