Thus, the focus is not the answer, but the critical thinking skills developed and enhanced through the exploration of connections, invention of strategies, social negotation of ideas, and application of strategies.

1.)Explain that students will be learning about measuring circles and a mysterious number called "pi". Define the terms circumference , radius and diameter . Read the book Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi to the class. Card catalog description: When Sir Cumference drinks a potion which turns him into a dragon, his son Radius searches for the magic number known as pi which will restore him to his former shape.) 2.)Divide students into groups of 2-3.
T he 3 ages of rocks and crystals. If we study those geological forms in time all of them go through the 3 ‘states-ages’ of matter, that shape the long geological cycles of the inner and outer regions of the mantle, which often culminate in the creation of crystals, the 3rd most perfect, informative molecular age. The generational, life cycle of those geological systems and rocks is very slow compared to our life rhythms, according to the space-time inversion, max.
