It’s 1912 and you escape your orphanage to stowaway on the Titanic. After it hits an iceberg, the Captain calls on your mathematical skills to work out if the ship will sink and how many people can be saved. But will you make it off the ship alive?
In this Experience, your class will use fractions to work out:
- Which deck they should hide on as a stowaway
- How many flooded compartments will sink the Titanic
- If there are enough lifeboats and how many people can fit in each
- The numbers of dead and survivors
During this Experience your class will complete a worksheet. Worksheets are differentiated.
