Cube problem: How would you change this problem if you were going to use it?
I have used this problem a number of times in workshops as well as prealgebra classes. I always give the students buckets of cubes so that they can see the problem in concrete form prior to dealing with the abstract. I encourage them to make a chart and find the patterns before developing the formulas.
