Mr. Cloud Cooks Dinner

My wife was going to be late getting home from class and I was on my own for dinner. I was going through the fridge and noticed that it was time for a cleaning. We had some veggies and such that weren’t quite in a condition to eat…so I thought that it was a perfect opportunity to make a geometry lesson on cross sections!

The idea is for students to have to give their best interpretation of what they think the cross section of each cut would be. This lesson isn’t anything too special or ground breaking. Just a nice twist to give my students a real-world look at what cross sections are and how they’re already familiar with them.
