What could be more fun than applying new skills to an investigation involving Oreo cookies?
In this Common Core Activity, students will work in groups to write and solve a system by elimination method to find the number of calories in the parts of an Oreo cookie.
Students should already have familiarity with solving systems by elimination.
This activity takes about 30 minutes and requires only the worksheet, however it is made much more enjoyable and memorable by providing actual cookies (5 cookies per group of 4 students).
Step-by-step instructions are provided as well as suggested questions for facilitating the activity.
