277- Singapore Math: Constructing with Cubes to Understand Volume

Thursday, April 14, 2011: 3:30 PM-4:30 PM
Grand Ballroom I (JW Marriott)
Lead Speaker:
Katherine de la Garza

Join us as we explore how a problem-solving lesson on volume encourages students' inquiry, communication, and metacognition. When students are given the opportunity to explore volume by building figures with cubes, they not only construct meaning and the formula for volume, but also have fun and gain confidence as mathematicians.
