2D and 3D Volume and Area TestToday students will take the 2D and 3D Volume and Area Test, and I will utilize Mastery Connect. Problems on today's assessment bring in several of the mathematical practices - on top of persevering with each problem (MP 1), paying attention to calculations and units (MP 6), and using tools strategically - calculator, drawings (MP 5) - students will also be expected to model their understanding (MP 4) through real world applications (MP 2).
