Constructing a box of maximum volume 2015-04-14
From Margot:
I need to do a PA for maths and I'm a bit stuck. The PA is about folding a box with a volume that is as big as possible. The first few questions where really easy but then this one came up.

A cone of maximum volume 2015-03-16
From Mary:
I have to use a 8 1/2 inch by 11 inch piece of paper to make a cone that will hold the maximum amount of ice cream possible by only filling it to the top of the cone. I am then supposed to write a function for the volume of my cone and use my graphing calculator to determine the radius and height of the circle. I am so confused, and other than being able to cut the paper into the circle, I do not know where to start. Thank you for your help! -Mary
