CONES & CYLINDERS MATH LAB

You have been employed by Cooks Chapeau & Cloak Shoppe on Diagon

Alley to create prototypes for the next school year at Hogwarts. Mr.

Ollivander is getting ready to retire and he has asked that you take over the

store and business.

You will have several tasks to complete. You will need to create a net for

a witch or wizards hat (cone), a net for a childs size wand (cylinder), and

to determine what is the best cost efficient size for a students cauldron.

We will gather data for hat sizes together in class, but you will need to

record all of the data on your report form.

TASK ONE : BRAINSTORMING

On a piece of notebook paper, write whatever pops into your head about

CONES and CYLINDERS. Think about where you see them, how they are

used, etc. Make sure to consider each shape as if it were rotated,

translated, or reflected.

After you have completed your list, create a working definition of a net.

Discuss your definition with the others at your table to see if you need to

make any revisions. When you are satisfied with the definition, discuss

where and why nets are used in a real world setting.

TASK TWO: HATS AND HAT SIZES

You will need to record your classmates head size (circumference in cm)

from the chart paper. Next, take the raw data and organize it in order from

least to greatest or greatest to least. After your have organized the data,

determine what the mean, median, and mode is for the class.

Why would these statistics be needed to determine a prototype? Would you

consider the mean, the median, or the mode? Why?

Birthday party hats, New Years Eve party hats and snow cone cups are

cones without bases. DRAW the cone in three different perspectives (top,

bottom, and side). If we cut a party hat and lay it flat, what shape would it

be? Use a straight cut line on the cone from bottom to top. The cut that you

are making will represent the slant height. The point at the top is called the

apex.

Open it up and lay it flat. What do you observe? LABEL the slant height of

the cone.

CALCULATE what the area of the base would be if it existed.

TASK THREE: WANDS

Labels from a soup can or a paper towel roll are cylinders without bases.

Your task is to work backwards and create a net for a wand. Brainstorm

what would be an

appropriate length and circumference for the wand so it can be easily held

and still remain lightweight. Once you have created your 3-D prototype,

draw the wand in three different perspectives (top, bottom, and side views).

Next, open the wand and lay it flat. What shapes make up a cylinder? On

your wand model, LABEL the radius and diameter of the bases. What is the

circumference for each circle base? COMPUTE the lateral surface area for

the wand. Explain the relationship of the circular bases to the lateral

surface. Does it make a difference where the circle shapes are located on

the net?

TASK FOUR: CAULDRONS

For this experiment you will need paper plates, scissors, a compass and a

protractor to make various sizes of cauldron prototypes. The cauldron will

be an inverted cone. After you have created the cones, you will be doing

some calculating and measuring.

Take a paper plate and find the exact middle. What are some strategies or

techniques that might be used to accomplish this task?

Draw a radius line from the midpoint to the edge of the plate. Use your

protractor and draw the angle on the paper plate. Cut out the angle and

save both pieces. Carefully tape one of the pie pieces on the cut lines to

make a cone. Do NOT overlap edges when you are taping. This will cause

a measurement error later. Tape the cone on both sides for support.

After you have made the cones, stop and complete the table.

ANGLE In degrees FRACTION OF THE CIRCLE DECIMAL FORM

PERCENT FORM ANGLE In degrees FRACTION OF THE CIRCLE

DECIMAL FORM PERCENT FORM

30 330

45 315

60 300

90 270

120 240

135 225

150 210

180 180

225 135

270 90

What was the circumference for the paper plate before you did any cutting?

Which cone was the most difficult to construct? Why?

MEASUREMENT

Once you are sure your cones will support weight, get a scale and gram

stackers. Fill each cone with rice and record the weight in grams.

GRAPHING

A. The fraction of the circle will be the TITLE for the x-axis (horizontal). Be

sure the scale is correct. Hint! Look at the denominators.

B. The volume will be the TITLE for the y-axis (vertical).

C. Should you connect the dot plots? Why or why not?

D. Make three observations based on the results of the graph.

E. In your opinion, which cauldron would be the most cost efficient to

mass- produce for the students at Hogwarts?

TASK FIVE: PROBLEM SOLVING

Reflect on the four tasks you have completed thus far. Using a T-chart

format, make a list of the problems you had in the left column. In the right

column, describe how you solved your problems.

TASK SIX: EVALUATION

Write a friendly letter to Professor Dumbledore describing your

recommendations for the school supplies of hats, wands, and cauldrons.

Support your recommendations using the data you gathered while

completing the five tasks. Dont forget to include vocabulary, formulas, and

statistics to solidify your recommendations.
