Product Description
There are many ideas for helping students visualize volumes of solids by cross sections, but nothing gets the students’ attention more than food‼ This simple packet includes directions for making the hemisphere cake and a lab sheet for the students. The lab only takes about 20 minutes so there is plenty time to present the lesson with examples and culminate with the hemisphere cake.

Of course, the lab could be done with half of a ball of Styrofoam, but where’s the fun in that????

My students encounter this concept in our calculus textbook in Ch. 7 on Applications of Integration thus the numbering 7-1. Hope this is helpful. Enjoy!
