Objective
Students will apply measurement skills to determine, in dollar bills, the capacity of a
suitcase.
Overview of the Lesson
The prize for winning a radio contest will provide the winner with up to $1,000,000
in cash. The catch is that the winner is only allowed one suitcase in which to carry
away as much money as it will hold. Will this amount be more or less than the
$1,000,000? Students devise plans to determine an appropriate estimate for the
amount of money it will take to fill a given suitcase.
