Students will create a three tier/layer cake model out of construction paper that is big enough to feed 8 people. Each tier/layer must be a different polygonal prism. 2 of the tiers/layers must have the same volume. Students will also need to give the surface area in square cm and square mm as well as the volume in cubic cm. The final step will be calculating how much frosting is necessary if each container covers 100 square cm.
Includes rubric based on the Ontario grade seven 3-D measurement expectations.
