10 Google Earth and Maps Actions for Math Classes

I’m taking the week off to do a bunch of enjoyable issues with my children. Whereas I’m away the preferred posts of the 12 months up to now will reappear.

Final week I shared instructions for measuring perimeter and space in Google Earth. Doing that’s one in all some ways to include Google Earth into arithmetic classes. Making that video prompted me to make a listing of how to make use of Google Earth and Maps (which has comparable measuring instruments) in arithmetic classes. 

This is my listing of concepts for utilizing Google Earth and Maps in arithmetic classes. The listing is in no explicit order aside from how the concepts got here into my thoughts. 

  • Measuring perimeter of sq., rectangular, and triangular items of land or buildings.
  • Measuring and calculating space.
  • Calculating land use for farming actions.
  • Calculating the world of a crop circle.
  • Figuring out touchdown strips the place airplanes of varied sizes can safely land.
  • Planning a mountaineering path and calculating elevation acquire over the path.
  • Planning a mountain biking path.
  • Calculating the distinction in strolling time in actual life versus what Google Maps calculates.
  • Mapping fireplace hydrant placement for a metropolis.
  • Designing the spacing of homes in a sub growth. 

Clearly, I have not crammed within the particulars of all of those concepts. I am going to try this in a future submit.
