When students are solving word problems, they often get confused about what information is important and how to approach solving the problem. In the book ROUTINES FOR REASONING, the authors Grace Kelemanik, Amy Lucenta, and Susan Janssen Creighton suggest various strategies to help kids think about what quantities are important and the relationship between those quantities.
This product allows us to think about volume and the quantities we use when solving volume problems in a new way. It challenges students to think about the quantities they are using when finding volume and why those quantities are important, or how they are connected to one another. It is an invaluable tool for helping kids to solve word problems with volume. I hope you enjoy and fall in love with this capturing quantities strategy the way I have.
