Christmas in October?

October 3, 2018

Spheres are good at any point in the year!

We looked today at the amount of empty space that exists in these packages.


Given minimal information (one side length of the prism) we determined the other dimensions of the prism, and the spheres.  We practiced our volume calculations that we derived yesterday, and we subtracted to find the empty space.


The cups on the desk are our signal that we need help.  If there’s a red cup stacked on top it means “urgent help needed”, if there’s a yellow cup it means “we’re running into trouble, we need some help”, and the green cup on top means “smooth sailing, we’re doing well”.

This will hopefully eliminate some loud attempts to get help.
