For this project, students assume the role of an ice cream connoisseur. The task is to create an ice cream sundae big enough to serve 4 people to sell at Dairy Delights Family Restaurant. Students need to create the ice cream sundae recipe by planning the ice cream and the toppings that will be used on the sundae using the ingredient/price sheet. The restaurant also does catering, so students will need to compute unit prices for the ingredients, prepare a budget, and calculate the cost to feed 20, 60, and 100 people. Using ratio and rate language, each student will write a proposal to persuade the Dairy Delights manager to use the ice cream sundae recipe in the restaurant.
This is a fun way for students to demonstrate their understanding of ratios, rates, and unit rates!
