Maximum Volume of a Cone Set

The Maximum Volume Cone Set Includes a circular pre-drilled template, thumb screw and wingnut, beaker with graduations and instructions, including programming the TI 83-84. The template is designed to allow the student to form three distinct cones and experimentally explore the volume by measuring the amount of material each cone holds. The experimental results can be compared to the expected results produced by executing the volume formula for a cone with the given specifications. Students are expected to form a hypothesis about the possible cones. Here is another challenge offered by this problem! After graphing the relationship between radius and volume determine the height of the maximum volume cone and use trigonometry to determine the angle formed by the base and the slant height

To improve the contrast for photographing the beaker has been filled with colored water, and plastic beads have been added to the cone. The best measurements are obtained when sand or similar material is used.
