A Three-Act Task is a whole group mathematics task consisting of 3 distinct parts: an engaging and perplexing Act One, an information and solution seeking Act Two, and a solution discussion and solution revealing Act Three. This power point will take students through a video of a confusing variety of toilet papers available for sale in grocery stores. Then students will have to decide what information they would need to know in order to find which package is the best deal. They will need to divide to find the best price per roll. Finally the best deal is revealed.
This task is best suited for 5th and 6th grade students who are able to divide and work with decimals.
