Animoto project and instruction sheet

Math Movie Project

Objective: Students will utilize photography and other technology to show how to find perimeter, area, and circumference.

Materials: camera/cell phone, computer, measuring tape, found objects

Procedures:

  1. Locate an object and take a picture: square, rectangle, circle, odd shaped
  2. Sketch the object on the recording sheet
  3. Measure the object and record the measurements
  4. Find the area, perimeter, or circumference (must have at least one of each)
  5. Create a storyboard for the movie showing the object, measurements, and how to solve each problem
  6. Put together the movie
  7. Share movie with class

Timeline:

  • Monday, January 30- Review perimeter, area, circumference
  • Tuesday, January 31- Introduce project and objectives
  • Thursday, February 2- Find, measure, photograph objects and record information
  • Friday, February 3- Complete area, perimeter, circumference calculations, Create storyboard
  • Monday, February 6- Complete storyboard, share with peers and teacher to check work, learn movie program
  • Tuesday, February 7- Create movie
  • Wednesday, February 8- Movie share

Grade:

Picture/Recording- 20 points (pictures are clear, measurements recorded, and complete calculations)

Planning- 40 points (each picture is sketched, text is written completely, peer evaluation, teacher check)

Final product- 20 points (movie sticks to script, teaches lessons, work well together, finish on time)

Self- evaluation- 20 points (teams will give themselves a grade based on work)
