Minecraft EDU

Minecraft edu is a new education method that will bring Minecraft to schools in multiple countries like Finland, USA and China. It also has a custom mod that is really helpful for classroom teachers and homeschool teachers to use. Like my mom! The mod makes it so the teacher (or person that has the mod) can teleport students to them (the teacher). From there, the teacher can place blocks that symbolize where the student can or cannot build.  The teacher can create assignments and give them tools like diamond armor, iron pickaxes and golden swords.  She/he can set the spawn point and allow creative mode and flying. I use math in minecraft already with out realizing it because I have to use a lot of fractions. For example, when I have to figure out how much space is needed to build a 9 by 9 farm and a 10 by 8 house or a 6 by 4 super small pirate ship.  Say you want to make a 5 by 5 house.  How many blocks would you need to build half of it or the whole thing?  You figure that out first on paper or in your head, using your math facts, and then you can easily check your math by building it in the game.
