In this lesson for the middle grades, learners calculate and compare volumes of cylinders and rectangular prisms, using bales of hay as the common unit. Students must use mathematics to explain why one shape of hay bale may be preferable economically to the other. But wait.....the round bales don't fit in a barn as well. Storing bales outside results in loss of product due to mold, which students must consider. The activity was developed to promote understanding of volume through real-life scenarios. The resource is aligned to NCTM standards and includes lesson objectives, teaching tips, and a printable student worksheet. This resource is part of a larger collection of lessons, labs, and activities developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM).
