Students build a solution to a rather complex problem: Finding the edge length of an octahedron given its volume by solving two simpler problems first.
Students build a solution to a rather complex problem—finding the edge length of an octahedron given its volume—by solving two simpler problems.
First, students find a formula for the edge length of a square given its area.
Students write an equivalent formula with fractional exponents and substitute values to find the edge length of a particular square.
