In Ice Cream Engineers, geometry students are given the dimensions of a cone and must critique a solution for finding the surface area of the closed cone. Students are asked, through argumentative language and questions, to construct an argument using evidence to support their claim on the solution. Ice Cream Engineers applies knowledge of calculating surface area, using Pythagorean theorem to find a missing side length, and critiquing another student’s claim.
