Optimization: Maximizing Volumes

This web page includes an interactive Java applet to visualize finding an open-topped box of maximum volume by cutting square corners from a flat sheet of cardboard and folding the sides up. The web page includes a series of exploration instructions and points to consider. There is also a Launch Presentation button that launches the Java applet in a much larger format ideal for presenting to a class.
