Using Pennies to Estimate Area

Standard

To introduce area, we took some time to estimate the area of our tables.  Our goal was to figure out “how many pennies” it will take to cover the table.  It was so cool to see the different ways students attacked the problems.  Creativity is an underutilized resource in learning, as is student collaboration.
