Fitting Boxes into Boxes

Open Up Resources VariesSupport for English Language Learners

Let's use what we learned about fractions to find shipping costs. In this three-part culminating activity, students use what they have learned to determine the most economical way to ship jewelry boxes using the United States Postal Service (USPS) flat-rate options. In Part 1, students make sense of the task, outline what they will need to know and do to answer the question, and map out their plan. In Part 2, they model the problem, calculate the number of jewelry boxes that will fit into each shipping box, and determine the associated costs.
