Packing the Packages

Sheryl Yamada 

September 2002

Abstract:

Students explore the importance of the size and shape of packaging products. Students work with surface area, volume, optimization, spatial visualization, and manufacturing cost to determine the characteristics of the "best" box for a product. They determine the box shape that results in the maximum volume using the least amount of material.
