Description:

Learners display their findings after a study of surface area and volume. They build a mobile to show a commercially available box and a constructed cubical box of the same volume. Learners also display the pieces left over from the original box showing that the cubical box has less surface area. This activity requires learners to have previous knowledge of calculating surface area and volume. Activity time can be divided over multiple meetings.
