Day 165: Dandy Candies II

Geometry finished up Dandy Candies from yesterday.

My district has a cross curriculum writing protocol that pretty much all students understand. I had my group write a paragraph analyzing if there was a better packaging option out there than the four we looked at yesterday.

They did a great job on their paragraphs, I was impressed with the level of understanding and reasoning they put into the problem.

  1. Have you tried the second extension? Creating a general rule for any number of candies that’ll get you the best possible dimensions? Something like Step One … do this … Step Two … do this … etc. Most fun I’ve had working on a math problem in awhile.
