## Guessing Gumballs Sequel

Real World Applications of 3D Measurement Proportional Reasoning With Volume of a Cylinder and Sphere In this 3 act math task, students will extend the proportional reasoning and 3D-measurement skills used in the previous task, Guessing Gumballs, to determine whether the gumballs from the short and wide jar will fit into the tall and thin jar. The learning goals for this task include: calculating the volume of a cylinder and applying their knowledge; calculating the volume of a sphere and applying their knowledge; applying their knowledge of proportional reasoning to solve problems.

## Guessing Gumballs

Real World Applications of 3D Measurement Proportional Reasoning With Volume of a Cylinder and Sphere In this 3 act math task, students sharpen their proportional reasoning and 3D-measurement skills as they try to determine how many packages of gumballs as well as how many gumballs (individually) will it take to fill the cylindrical jar. The learning goals for this task include: calculating the volume of a cylinder and applying their knowledge; calculating the volume of a sphere and applying their knowledge; applying their knowledge of proportional reasoning to solve problems.
