Session 9: Measurement Relationships
 

In this session, you will explore the dynamic relationships that exist among measurements, such as area and perimeter or surface area and volume. More specifically, you will look at what happens to one variable when the other one is fixed. You will also consider some practical applications of these relationships.

For information on required and/or optional materials, see Note 1.
