Volume of a box lesson. Included: guided notes, directions for activity to create box with max volume (will need graph paper), independent practice, and homework.
PDF and editable word file included! (4 pages of notes/activity, 2 pages of homework - answer key)
Also included - flipchart with lesson already transferred! ( 5 slides )
I use this in 6th and 7th grade geometry/volume unit - but it could be adapted. This is based off the cut corners calculus/pre-calculus problem using the first derivative of the volume.
Answer key included!!
*I use the vocabulary table with the Brainpop video on volume of prisms.
