    I chose Corner to Corner. I think I have trouble seeing more than two solutions (both similar) in this task. I guess I don’t know my students well enough to see how they might solve this problem.

    1. I see the students drawing an illustration labelling the measurements of the classroom. Applying the pythagorean theorem, students will find either the diagonal of the area of the width and length of the classroom. They will then substitute to find the intended diagonal.

    2. Maybe some students will add all three squared lengths together and then square root to find the intended diagonal.
