Muffle's Truffles - a third grade Math Exploration

All Grade Levels participate in Math Explorations with "Contexts for Learning" units.  Each unit poses a bigger problem for students to engage with.  In Muffle's Truffles, students work as design team members to create different sizes of truffles boxes for Muffle's Chocolate Shop.  Students look at how many sizes of chocolate boxes they can design and then need to evaluate which of their creations are best likely to meet Muffle's needs.  Students use an number of different strategies to figure out the math and then present and justify their conclusions.
