Using The Geometer's Sketchpad to Visualize Maximum-Volume Problems

David Purdy 

March 2000, Volume 93, Issue 3, Page 224

Abstract:
Using this featured sketch and others like it, whether constructed by the teacher or by the student, can clearly aid in visualizing maxima in volume problems. Students gain practice in, and motivation for, such skills as polynomial multiplication. They see strong connections among technology, algebra, and geometry.
