Box Folding Problem - Classroom/Home Simulator by LFS and Dani Novak 

Sample Scenario: A piece of cardboard is rectangular with length=4" and width=6".  We cut out a h" square from each corner and fold up the sides to form a box. What length should h be to maximize the volume of the box?


User interacts graphically with folding box to find the box with maximum volume (of a cubic polynomial).
