 ImageYard Dice Claim
 Teacher noteThe "answer" on the box is in inches. Use that information if you will use the box for act 3. I can't find a definition for traditional dice. Those pictured came from an old monopoly game. The info is from dice game depot.
 Teacher noteI would have groups build a model of a die they think is 550% larger and support their model with mathematics.

 Teacher noteSeveral variations of the "answer". Use whichever works best for you.
 FileThere should be some discussion of whether the "claim" is correct. I question the claim. I think it should be by volume.

Is this 550% bigger in 1dimension, or by volume? Is one overwhelming/underwhelming?

Wow! That's an obnoxious number! Who would want dice that is 550% bigger?














Can we figure out how big the dice are before opening the package?
