Self Check Exercise

Make Connections

Performance Task

Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Take notes about your classmates’ approaches to revising and solving the Self Check problem.


As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • What part of the task was most difficult?
  • What errors in your work did you have to revise? How did you go about revising the mistakes?
  • Did you and your partner ever disagree about some aspect of the problem? If so, were you able to resolve your difference of opinion? How?
  • How did you use the two-dimensional views of the figure to help you find the surface area and volume of the figure?
  • What shapes (or figures) did you break the front view into to help you find the surface area (or volume)?
  • Did you find two ways to solve the problem? Can you explain what they are?
