Chocolate heart-shaped raspberry cake


For Valentine's Day, bake a cake!

Students calculate base area or volume of cakes made from 2 cake pan sizes and observe how the volume of the cake changes with the increased pan size.  This is an activity intended to demonstrate that the volume increase is not linear.  Volume expansion would be cubed if all dimensions of the cake were enlarged but in this case (since we didn't increase cake depth) only two dimensions are enlarged.

For Adventurer members we have an editable Word docx, our Excel computations, and solutions.
