Description:

In this lesson, students use dimensions of round and square hay bales to calculate and compare volumes. They also calculate unit prices to determine which hay bale is the better value. Finally, students explore how to fit round and square bales into a barn to maximize volume, and decide which type of hale bale is the best choice. A class handout, plus solutions for the teacher, leads the problem-solving activity.
