Congratulations to Sam on achieving top score in the Grade 9 Investigation. Sam wrote a great report and also made a lovely model of his topic.

The brief was:
In this Investigation you are asked to research the interesting ways Surface Area & Volume apply to the real world. Think of a gift – how could it be wrapped up, how much paper would be needed and what would be its volume.
