PRIMUS, v16 n2 p138-146 Jun 2006
For some students, using the method of cross sections to find the volume of a solid is difficult to understand because of the abstraction involved. This paper demonstrates a fun way for students to visualize the method of cross sections. Although a fun activity, the paper implicitly conveys the importance of connecting theory and experiment. (Contains 4 figures, 1 table, and 1 footnote.)
