Choosing the Best Heater

In this assessment, students are given several diagrams of a bedroom with labeled dimensions of the room and the furniture. Students are then tasked with choosing the best possible heater for the room based on several conditions, such as cost, fit, and space that the heater can heat. The different pieces of furniture of the room are of different shapes so students need to know how to calculate the areas and volume for each of them.
