Reflection: Grappling with Complexity Volume and Surface Area of Prisms and Pyramids Fluency Practice - Section 2: Explore


I am glad I took the day to review a mixture of the shapes - the kids struggled to remember all the rules - what to divide, when to divide it, etc.  Having student leaders really helped the process - as sometimes they see things differently than I, and can give their peers tips and insight into how they do it.
