In this lesson, students will each find the volume of a cylinder (an actual can), using already explored formulas, and then create on paper a rectangular prism that has the same volume. Since this exercise is for a "real" company, they are challenged to minimize the surface area of their prism. Through class discussion, students compare the two formulas for volume, and the relation between volume and surface area. Included here are student questions, assessment ideas, and activity pages.
