3 Act Math: Pretzel Cut

This task is a little different than most, but I really think it has some good exploration built in and it lends itself to more of an open task.  The standards that I think best fit this task are Math Practice 1, 3, and 4.  If you think there is a good fit with a content standard, please comment below.  There is definitely some partitioning of the whole which could be a good application of 3.GA.2.

Act 1

What did you notice?  What do you wonder?

Focus Question: How will the bread be cut?

Act 2

I made 7 cuts.  Number of Pretzels

Act 3
