Assessment with Manipulatives (Math 9)
Recently I gave my Math 9 students an option to use linking cubes to help them write a surface area quiz. Immediately some students knew they would want to use the manipulatives and collected the cubes prior to the start of the test while others waited to preview the quiz first. In the end, all of the students used the cubes to help them complete the quiz. Interesting that when given the choice, the students utilized the manipulatives!
