In 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...
In this clip, Stephanie and Dana continue working on the Towers Problem, introduced in the previous clip in this series. For each tower that they create, Stephanie checks it against the ones they have already created to be sure that it is not a duplicate. Once they have created seventeen towers, they realize that every new tower they build is a duplicate of one that they already have. They tell Amy that they have found...

This is the third clip in a series of seven of building towers four tall problem using red and blue unifix towers. They tell the researcher that they have a total of seventeen towers. However, Brian identifies a tower that he feels is a duplicate and eliminates it. He counts the towers and comes up with a total of sixteen towers. After that he puts aside one tower that he feels is a duplicate and...
This is the fifth clip in a series of seven of building towers four tall problem using red and blue unifix towers. Jeff shouts to everyone that they have sixteen towers. Brian keeps checking and makes three additional towers, putting two aside, and adding one tower RRRB after he checks it for duplicates. After Brian had done the checking, they revert to their original solution of seventeen towers. Jeff however is against the idea of...
