## ACT 1

Watch the video below. What do you notice? What do you wonder?

## ACT 2

We're going to need some more information. Does this help?

In each box there are 2 ten sticks and one single cube.

## ACT 3

Well...that means there are 21 cubes in each box and 14 boxes total.

**So, 21x14=?****We can make that an easier problem. Lets pretend that 14 is really 10 and save the extra four.**

**21*10=210**

21*4=84

210 + 84 = 294 cubes!21*4=84

210 + 84 = 294 cubes!
