I had such fun with this the table gallery we made with the Falling Leaves PoW, that I thought I’d do another one. This time, rather than share my thoughts, I’m curious to hear what you notice and wonder about each table. Students worked to solve the logic problem “Happy Thanksgiving” (to view the problem, you can sign up for a free Math Forum trial account, or if you’re already a member, just log in).

Enjoy!

From Jakub Z. at IS 141Q The Steinway [his classmates Ricardo M. and Ahbab A. also submitted great versions of similar tables]
