Description

Count the calories, make a fitness plan, watch weight, and practice linear inequalities in this 21st Century Math Project. Students will use real world authentic calorie data from common foods, popular fast food restaurants and also will use calorie burning measurements in a variety of activities. Students will look at meals and exercise in a completely different way as they help a cast of characters make dietary choices, plan meals and choose physical activities to remain fit.

Although students will learn elements of calories and fitness, the lessons focus on creating and using inequalities to model situations and make decisions. With a greater national focus on the diets of our children, this activity provides an objective, scientific view that students may never have been exposed to before.

Bring health and fitness into a math classroom!

In this 27 page PDF you will receive a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, handout resources for students to use, and an answer key. ***THIS PRODUCT HAS BEEN UPDATED WITH A GOOGLE SLIDES INTERACTIVE VERSION INCLUDED. REDOWNLOAD IF YOU HAVE IT ALREADY***


In all it is four different assignments --

-- Fast Food Calorie Count. Using the menus on the handout “Fast Food Nation” students will help five people write inequalities to determine if their lunch is within their daily caloric limit, but the catch is they only eat a steady diet of fast food.

-- Fitness Guru. Using the data on the handout “The Burn Chart” students will help five people write inequalities to determine if they will burn enough calories to reach their personal fitness goals.

-- Weight Watchers. Using the data on the handout “The Burn Chart” and “The Food Chart” students will help five people write inequalities to determine if they will burn enough calories to reach their weight loss or weight gain goals.

-- Personal Trainer. Using the data on the handout “The Burn Chart”, “The Food Chart”, and “Fast Food Nation” you will tailor diet plans and fitness regiments for five celebrities – all with very different demands.
