Representation: Students will need to represent their ideas by making models of the various hexomino nets and exploring how they fit together with the least amount of waste.
Communication: Students need to discuss the relationships between the nets, ask questions, and answer one another's questions about the nets as they try to find the net that will cover the roll of paper with the least amount of waste.
Reasoning and Proof: Students need to reason about the shape of each net and how it will tessellate to cover the plane surface.
Problem Solving: Students need to use various strategies to approach this problem. Making a model, solving a simpler problem, and identifying provided and required information, are all samples of the strategies that students might use.
