You can make yourself into a Lego Figure like Mathspig, but first ….

Ideally, students would measure their own Lego Man. Otherwise, use the dimensions shown and fill in the chart. 

To calculate your Lego man conversion factor:

   Lego Conversion Factor =   Your Height mm/ Lego Man height mm

eg. Mathspig Height = 172 cm

Mathspig Lego Conversion = 1720/ 38.2 =  44.6

A full size Lego Mathspig is 172 cm, therefore a full sized lego Mathspigs legs would be:

Mathspig Lego Legs = 14.0 x 44.6 = 624.4 mm = 62.4 cm
