Geometry Project -- Boxes

We'll soon be starting an exploration in geometry that will be built around work with a box. Each student will need to bring in a box to work with. The best kind of box is usually some sort of food packaging because these are light weight enough to be cut easily, and are of a reasonable size. So keep an eye out for a box that might be emptied in your kitchen or pantry. Cereal boxes, rice or pasta boxes, tea boxes, and the like are perfect. Sometimes the kind of packages that are used for over the counter medicines or soap products are good too. The 64 Math group needs their boxes by Tuesday, Feb. 19, and the 63 Math group will need to bring in boxes by Monday, Feb. 25.
