We’ve mastered the square….now bring on the cube!
Using Cube Roots to Represent Solutions to Equations begins with connecting a students understanding and knowledge of working with square roots to the newer concept of cube roots. The exploration of patterns introduces students to the idea of cubing and taking the cube root of different values.
As they work through the activity they are given numerous opportunities to reason and think as they problem solve with cube roots. Students will be challenged to put their knowledge to the test as they determine if a cubed box will fit into a specific spot.
