Commonwealth A-B (Westin)

Samantha G. Briceno

Join us for hands-on, manipulative-rich tasks focused on exploring volume. Participants will work collaboratively to develop understanding of volume of prisms through building towers, problem-solve while comparing volumes of cylinder popcorn holders, and squish clay to derive the volume formula of a sphere.
