What exactly is MATH IS REAL LIFE?
Math IS Real Life is a monthly blog link-up hosted by a math loving dork! The purpose of #MIRL is to bring examples of how I (and others who link up) have used math in OUR real lives in the last month. The hosted link-up is the first Wednesday of each month and often have other friends and math bloggers join in the fun!
You can check out our Pinterest boards HERE
to read archived posts, grab real-world ideas/ pictures and even some freebies to use in your classroom.
This particular freebie goes along with the July 2014 edition
of Math IS Real Life that will be live on 7/2/2014. Make sure to check out the link-up . . . feel free to join in too!
This freebie includes a real world serving size scenario in which students will need to determine how many different ways they can create 4 equal servings given the same starting cake. This product is meant to be used at many levels and it is up to the teacher's discretion as to how deep to dig with his/her students. I highly suggest using this activity to open up a mathematical discourse in your classroom. I think you might be surprised at how deep your students can go with this! Also, make sure to try it on your own before looking at the key (only a few of the possible answers listed!)
Make sure to check out the blog post for real pictures to use in your classroom.
