# Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

- Take notes about other classmates’ approaches to finding the volume of water in the Great Lakes and their use of the problem-solving process.

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

- How did you use the diagram in the interactive to calculate the volume of water in each lake?
- What unit conversions were necessary when calculating the volume of water in the lakes? Why?
- How can you use the graphic to make sure your answer is reasonable?
- Why should you use average depth when calculating the volume of water in each lake rather than maximum depth or surface elevation?
- Which steps of the problem-solving process were the most helpful when answering the questions?
