This project is to teach students about surface area and why it is important in the real world. The goal for students is to figure out which candy wastes the most in packaging by measuring surface area of a candy and measuring the area of the wrapper. Project is separated into 3 days to make it more manageable for the scholar. There are additional questions that offer a spiral review of other material such as: ordering rational numbers, finding average and volume. Final assignment is writing a letter.
