    How do you plan to use this task?

    After reviewing the Teacher Guide, do you still have any wonders or worries?

    Once you’ve used the task, be sure to share what modifications you made either before or during the task and what you might do differently next time.

    How do you embed the day 3 video into Knowledgehook? I can’t find the embed code. Just watched your Knowledgehook webinar from last summer and I’m giving it a try. I tried running an activity in Desmos and now I want to compare it to Knowledgehook.

      Hi John!

      Let me have a look at our video settings and get back to you. They should be embeddable…

    I did this task today. We had to take a break, because… Covid last week. Haha, but the kids jumped right back in today.

    We spent A LOT of time on the first sense making task. I had them make an estimate with their partner then get together wtih another partner to convince the other group. This didn’t go great, they couldn’t convince any one to change their minds… So I had them share their solutions under the document camera to try to convince the class. It turned more into a lesson about how to convince others. Once they presented to the class a couple kids changed their minds… some to incorrect answers, but we discussed HOW their minds were changed. One group had a detailed diagram and another group told the others they measured using a ruler…. that group was way off, but we were able to talk about skills to convince others, which will be helpful I think! I’m excited to try the next part tomorrow.

      Sounds like a powerful experience! It can be really challenging for younger students to understand the need to convince someone and even more challenging to build the skills to do it. Not to mention that partitioning area into fractional amounts is also a huge skill to be developed. Keep us posted on your progress!
