The Thinking of Students
The Thinking of Students: Covering the Pool

Edward Mooney 

August 2006, Volume 12, Issue 1, Page 40

Abstract:

We focus on a few students' solutions to the "Covering the Pool" problem.

The Thinking of Students shares the thinking of middle school students as they explore and communicate mathematics. It highlights students' work, including projects, investigations, or creative solutions to the problems in the monthly menu. The department is a forum for sharing students’ discoveries, thoughts, problem solutions, or even challenges. The Thinking of Students is a regular department of Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School.
