See the Eight Standards of Mathematical Practice come to life, through a first-hand experience in which you'll be introduced to the work of a small business whose focus is on recycling flat bicycle inner tubes from an Arizona bike shop.

Utilizing a hands-on approach, you'll engage in the activities from the perspective of a middle-school student, seeing true applications of the concept of volume and calculating unit conversions.

All participants will receive resources to take back to your classroom to replicate this lesson.
