Task
Present the problem on the student Recording Sheet to your students.
Performance Criteria
 Does the student understand
how to divide by a twodigit number?
 Does the student show his
or her work and exhibit the ability to rearrange the digits to achieve
the desired quotients?
 Is the student able to construct
the figure and determine its volume?
 Do the student’s drawings
correspond to the dimensions and volume of the solids created with the
cubes?
Directions:
1. Two number cubes were rolled and the numbers 6 and 9 were
displayed.
The cubes were each rolled two more times with the numbers 8, 3, 7,
and 5 being displayed.
Using the digits 6 and 9 as the divisor and the 8, 3,
7, and 5 as the dividend, arrange the digits to give the least
possible quotient. Show your work to prove your answer. You may
check your work with a calculator.
2. Rearrange the digits to find the greatest possible quotient.
Show your work to prove your answer. You may check your work with
a calculator.
3. A. Using 48 centimeter cubes, construct a rectangular solid.
B. Determine the length, width,
height, and volume of the solid.
C. Draw a diagram of the solid showing its dimensions and volume.
D. Using a different number of cubes, construct another solid and determine
its volume.
E. Draw a diagram of the solid made in D. Show its dimensions and
volume.
