Where can I get these in metric? or blank so I can make them metric?

Thanks for asking! I just made some blank images for you. Click here to get them. Hope that helps!

I am curious if you really need to know the volume of the container since you give us the height of the chips and the height of the container.

Hey Evan! I think you’re exactly right. No need to calculate the volume. When I first made this, I thought we might need to know the volume, so that’s why I included the other dimensions.

This could be a good class discussion. Do we really need all of the given information in Act 2? What information isn’t needed and why?

Thanks for the comment!
