This lesson is intended to help you assess how well students are able to:
- Select appropriate mathematical methods to use for an unstructured problem.
- Interpret a problem situation, identifying constraints and variables, and specify assumptions.
- Work with 2- and 3-dimensional shapes to solve a problem involving capacity and surface area.
- Communicate their reasoning clearly.
