Banana Bread

This Banana Bread activity & project also includes:

Show your future bakers how to choose the right baking pan by calculating the volume of a pan. The resource compares two pans, one with decimal edge lengths and is too small for the recipe and one that may work. Your number crunchers are to determine if the second pan can be used to bake the banana bread. Ask students to construct viable arguments to why or why not the pan would work.
