You wish to break the bar up into all small squares. How many breaks are required? Stacking is not allowed, and the breaks are always made along a straight line.

Is this a possible answer?:

Stacking is not allowed, and the breaks are always made along a straight line.
Only stacking in a third dimension is not allowed? Cut pieces may be moved around on the plane or rotated to be cut further?
What about flipping of pieces? (although I fail to see how that may be advantageous at this point)
