    • Abstract:
      The article highlights two ways to solve the problem of filling a 2 x 2 x 12 hole with twenty four 1 x 1 x 2 bricks. The first solution is to consider the layers of bricks in the hole, presenting the two options which include one flat brick or two units thick. In the second way to solve the problem, the students will be allowed to play with the bricks until they have come up with an idea of how to fill the hole, which will initiate a discussion among the students. The author says that when dealing with such problems, it is good to sway from tangents.
