Reviewer Comments:

This activity asks students to create nets for small, medium and large popcorn boxes for a movie theater. Students are asked to calculate the cost, amount of waste material, the volume of the container and also justify their selections. The idea is creative however, the instructions are very limited. This activity would be improved by providing more detailed directions and some sample solutions. With additional details this would be a fun and engaging activity.
