Product Description

“Betty’s Bakery” is a rigorous math project that requires students to use addition, subtraction, multiplication, and array skills while solving bakery-themed problems. Students will especially use critical thinking and reasoning skills and put their minds to the test!

This project is broken down into 5 "tasks" which increase in rigor and are meant to be completed over several days. When completing the tasks, students will need to use the following skills:

• find the missing dimension of an array, given one dimension and the product
• find the product of an array, given the dimensions
• match arrays to their dimensions
• find a combination of arrays that add up to a given number
• calculate total costs
• break down and scale up recipes (whole numbers only)

View the preview above to see a sample of some of the tasks in the project.

In my classroom, I use Betty’s Bakery as an extension/enrichment project for early finishers and students who need an extra challenge. In this product I have included differentiation options (simpler combinations and numbers) for some of the bakery tasks, enabling you to use this project for your entire class! Use these options, along with partner or group work, to meet the needs of your students.
