From: Onder To: Teacher2Teacher Public Discussion Date: 2008040521:33:04 Subject: Re: Volume problem Maybe one way to approach this topic is to give an example: Choose two students from the classroom, a short and a little bit heavy student and a tall skinny one. You can sort of tell the students to think about volume sort of representing the volume and both students having the same weight/volume. Does it mean that both students can fit in the same spaces? For example taller student may not be able to go through a door without kneeling down. This way students may realize that not only the volume but also each dimension also plays a part in making decisions. Onder
