This week a group of student in POD 2 have been exploring maths and combinations through ice cream flavours!
We met Bianca Smith who owns an ice cream shop and who has too much vanilla, mint and banana ice cream and wants to sell it all before the cold weather hits.
We used unifix cubes to help her explore all the different combination of the three flavours that she could use and then we wrote and drew our findings like Mathematicians do.
Tomorrow we’re asking “What if?”…
If you would like to have a go at a similar challenge we found one on Mathletics: http://www.mathletics.com.au. Log on, click ‘problem solving’ on the right hand side, then ‘combination’ and ‘I scream Lady’.
