Got milk (geometry)
This packet contains a curriculum-embedded Common Core–aligned task and instructional supports. The task can be used as a group performance assessment on modeling, and should be proceeded by a review of volume and surface area. In the task students analyze the characteristics of sustainably designed items. In a real-world math application exercise, students calculate the surface area and volume of a prism and a cylinder in order to connect geometric properties to sustainable design principles. Students look at implications for redesigning products in order to minimize costs and maximize profits. Students will also use news articles to aid in their analysis of sustainability.
