The Amazing Mathematical Race: Boxing the Rare Element

Students enter a race against time to determine the maximum sized box that can be formed from a standard sheet of copy paper. The boxes are to be used to contain a valuable and rare element which is light as cotton and corrosive to all but paper containers. The team who can successfully "mine" the most of this rare element will be named the AMR champions.
