Today we got together with 3/4M to do a joint maths activity. Working in pairs, the students had to plan a dinner party for 6 people. They had to choose food for an appetiser, main course and dessert. Oh, and don’t forget some drinks. The students used supermarket catalogues to choose their food. The whole meal had to cost less than $60. The students had to use their addition and subtraction skills to calculate how much their food cost and how much change they would have left from $60.
Some great meals were planned and no one ran over budget but the very best bit was watching the students work together in their teams. Great work 3/4F & 3/4M!
Have a look at the fun we had.
