Reviewer Comments:

This exercise has students designing and then costing out packages for familiar products, like a Wii, a cell phone, etc.The exercise requires some understanding of volume and surface area, tho that knowledge is only indirectly applied. Most of the effort will go into non-mathematical aspects like aesthetics and safety.
