During a warm up in 5/6 math last week, we were solving a problem about the sugar in Mountain Dew. This led us to a conversation about sugar cubes. Several students were trying to estimate the weight in grams of a sugar cube. Inspired by their work, we created this three act math task to solve together.
How much do the sugar cubes weigh? What do you notice? What do you wonder? What information would help you solve this problem?
