This article describes a series of “food labs” designed to help calculus students make sense of abstract volume concepts. The methods include slicing (e.g., disk, washer, cross-section) and shell methods, and the author discusses how to use them in the classroom.
This is a description of a collaborative investigation by mathematics teachers into the numbers of dimensional boundaries for n > 2. Functions are fit to the patterns observed, and a relationship to Pascal's triangle is noted.

Two classroom activities—the Flatland game and sliceforms—are useful vehicles for student exploration of the geometric interplay between the dimensions.
