We begin with an example of student work for you to consider. As you observe this problem, think about how the teacher's questions help the student make connections between the tasks so that he can see the relationships between the views of the building.

Jeremy was given the top view of a building, as shown below:

He then drew the front, back, right, and left views, as shown:

Look at Jeremy's work and reflect on what he understands about the problem. What ideas about representing three-dimensional structures with two-dimensional drawings does he have? Use this information to help formulate some questions to ask Jeremy. How would you help him clarify his misconceptions?
