6 Goal Content Activities Background Context Assessment STEM Analytical work: 6

7 Mathematics ( STEM) LEGO geometry –The height on a brick is 9,6 mm without nubs, and the distance between nubs is 8 mm. A standard eight brick has following measures: Length:4 (4 x 8 = 32 mm) Wide:2 (2 x 8 = 16 mm) Height:1 (9,6 mm) Proposing: 5 – 5 – 6 (length– wide– height) Plates is 1/3 height of an brick: 3,2 mm

8 Calculations Calculation of vertical distances with plates: –1 height= 9,6 mm –+ 2 1/3 heights (9,6 / 3)*2)= 6,4mm –9,6 + 6,4 = 16 mm Calculation of horizontal distances –Distance between nubs / holes = 8 mm –2 holes is 8mm x 2 = 16 mm Without plates: –5 x 9,6 mm = 48 mm –6 x 8 mm = 48 mm This is calculations for building constructions with LEGO
