Getting ready for Common Core
This is a DOK 3 challenge question that all of my southern California kids can relate to- they LOVE In-N-Out!!
In this challenge, the students have to come up with a method to price a 10 x 10 chesseburger (10 patties and 10 slices of cheese). Once complete, they then figure the calories in a 10 x 10 burger. Then they take it further by creating their own "secret menu" item, pricing it, and determinig calories. The students really enjoy this DOK 3 challenge becasue it relates to their lives and is actually something they are curious about.
