This argumentation problem was designed for fifth graders understanding measurement and the relationship between area and volume. Students are given a visual representation of a floor plan, as well as the area and volume, and must critique the reasoning of the given response by investigating if the floor plan will always have the equal area and volume. This task provides a modification to simplify what is being asked of the students and contains argumentation language when asking students to create a claim, state evidence, and work through misconceptions.
