Shrinky Art – Scale Math Lab

My object I made was a minecraft head out of plastic. The one on the left is the first we put before the oven, and the right one is after it came out of the oven. They both looked the same only the sizes changed after being in the oven by 77.5%. It had the same shape also but it curled after it was in the oven and same as for people next to me had theirs curled after in the oven. the piece of plastic was very hot after it was in the oven. If I could change one thing for my plastic If i redid it, I would’ve probably put some color on.
