  • Teacher note
    This lesson is intended to be completed using fractions.

    The bread dimensions are approximately 10 1/2 by 6 1/2 by 4 inches when you take into consideration that the bread isn't a perfect rectangle.

    This problem is setup to use the sequel as an extension of the original problem. given this, have students use an initial cube measurement of 1 1/2 inches (total volume of 3 3/8 cu.in)

    For differentiation for a lower level class, either use the cube size above or use the final cube size (true size) of 3/4 inches (volume of 27/64 cu.in)
