This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 18, Unit 6, Grade 6. This activity presents a situation with a similar structure to the area situation in the Making a Banner activity. Students consider different combinations of base areas and heights that keep the volume of a rectangular box at 225 cubic inches. They complete a table for given values of area and height, write an equation relating the area and height, and graph the relationship. If students have completed the Making a Banner activity, prompt them to think about similarities and differences they noticed between the activities. Invite students to share these thoughts during the discussion.
