Three Dimensional Math Project
July 13, 2010
After my geometry class completes surface area and volume lessons, I give them eight sheets of construction paper and they construct a 3D person. They complete three categories: maximized surface area, maximized volume, and creativity. The kids really enjoy being their own boss in completing this project, and it does get quite competitive. I also take this opportunity to be the one time per year that a math class puts something in the display case!
