Challenge Task: I explored the Tile Circle task. Here is how I think each part of the task aligns with the curiosity path.

1. Withholding Information

• Students do not know how many square tiles it would take to go across the circle through the center.

2. Anticipation

• Students are shown through a video, gif, or still image how many times the number of square tiles that are needed to go through the center of the circle can be wrapped around the circle.

3. Notice and Wonder

• Students notate notices and wonders as they watch a video from the point of view of someone entering a building leading to a circle on the main entrance that is outlined with small square tiles.

4. Estimation

• Students are asked to estimate the number of square tiles that outline the circle on the floor.
