Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Takes notes about your classmates’ approaches to finding the tile sizes that will cover a grid exactly.

Hint:

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • How did you decide which squares to use to try to cover the grid?
  • Were there any square sizes that you knew right away would not cover the grid?
  • What are you finding when squares fit exactly along both the width and the length of the rectangular grid?
  • What does the largest square tile that covers the grid represent?
