DescriptionIn this clip, researcher Amy Martino introduces the following problem to the students: “How many different towers four blocks tall can you build when selecting from two colors?” Dana and Stephanie have bags of Unifix cubes at their desks and begin working on the problem by building towers independently. They run out of Unifix cubes, and after Amy encourages them to work together, they work on a solution together by comparing each of Dana’s towers to each of Stephanie’s, eliminating the duplicates.
