Students’ experience with two-dimensional and three-dimensional objects is extended to include informal explanations of circumference, area and volume formulas. Additionally, students apply their knowledge of two-dimensional shapes to consider the shapes of cross-sections and the result of rotating a two-dimensional object about a line.
A question is essential when it stimulates multi-layered inquiry,
provokes deep thought and lively discussion,
requires students to consider alternatives and justify their reasoning,
encourges re-thinking of big ideas, makes meaningful
connections with prior learning,
and provides students with opportunities to apply problem-solving skills to authentic situations.
