## Reflection: Rigor Solve problems involving volume - Section 2: Play of the Day

This year, I added another separate lesson that I thought was a very good lesson to PRECEDE this one - finding the missing dimension in volume problems.  Rather than jump straight into the more difficult problem-solving aspects of this, it was useful to tackle the volume problems in a different way - not finding volume when given the dimensions, but finding a missing dimension when given the volume.

See the attached classwork as a resource for this.

Rigor: Finding the missing dimension in volume problems
