Understanding how Cubes are calculated

  1. Energy Cubes collected at home are logged in Student Logbooks and Energy Cubes collected at school are recorded through the Calcul-o-Cube or in the Class Leader tally sheets.
  2. Each week, the Class Leader tallies the Energy Cubes collected by his/her group*. To do this, he/she enters the Cubes collected at home, and logged in the Student Logbooks, and those collected at school in the Calcul-o-Cube (or in the Class Leader tally sheet). If the Calcul-o-Cube is used, the results are automatically forwarded to the school’s Energy Cubes Challenge Leader.

    *Total for active breaks, recesses, physical education classes, daycare and special activities.

  3. The School Leader makes sure that the Calcul-o-Cube is updated or he/she gathers all the Class Leader’s tally sheets. Then, the School Leader records the school’s total of Energy Cubes on the Planet Cube website.

Discover the Calcul-o-Cube

With the help of our brand-new Calcul-o-Cube, you will be able to tally the number of energy cubes earned directly online. In short, it is a dynamic numerical spreadsheet. Here’s how to use it :

  1. The School Leader goes to the Calcul-o-Cube page and creates a calculator for his/her school. No authentication is required.
  2. The School Leader then creates sections for each classroom group.
  3. Once done, the School Leader will need to share the calculator with each of the teachers in his/her school. This unique link must be carefully saved!
  4. Each Class Leader will have to fill in their section each week with the number of Energy Cubes their group has collected at school and at home. The school total will be calculated automatically and classroom groups that have not completed their section will be easily identified!
  5. At the end of the challenge, the school’s total numbers will have to be transferred to Planet Cube by the School Leader before May 27.
