Book Synopsis
This is a fun math activity that I have used for several years in grades 6-9. It references the description from the Bible to calculate the amount of gold used to cover the Ark of the Covenant. Once the students determine the amount of gold used, they can calculate the value of the gold using the current price. The students discover that the value of the gold exceeds a staggering ten million dollars! The math concepts used in this activity are measurement conversions, the calculations of surface area (drawing a net), calculating volume, and weight (in customary and metric units), and percent. There is a paper model included that the students can color, cut out, and assemble.
