Detailed description

In the menu-based activity, ‘Meal Deal’ students use their mathematical knowledge to help a family work out how much their seafood meal will cost. The items on the menu included fillets of fish, hot dogs, squid rings, and dim sum: some items may not be familiar, so students can create their own fast food menu problems. This activity includes comprehensive teaching notes to be read before beginning the activity with students, as they feature useful background information and suggestions for supporting learning. An answer sheet is also provided.
