PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students are asked to use a discovery method in a small group setting to determine the volume of non-traditional solids. They are required to determine the meaning of displacement, discuss strategy, and critique their methods. Students must choose the appropriate tools and measure precisely. They must record, summarize, and present their results to the class.

This activity is designed for 8th - 10th grade students in Algebra or Geometry studying volume, and should only require one class period, but should follow a review of volumes for cubes, rectangular prisms and cylinders.

6 of the 8 Mathematical Practices are utilized (see cover) and the Common Core standard G-GMD.3.

My students had a blast - but plan to get wet!
