Real Life Math Project (PBL). Students will be entrepreneurs and will open and run their own Dessert Shops. They have to make many important decisions to have as much profit as possible.
This project involves students working in teams to run a Dessert Shop. They work on the project over an extended period of time – about 3-4 lessons.
It gives your students the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills through meeting challenges, and solving real-world problems, and keeps students engaged.
What is wonderful about it?
They can work at their own pace and don't even realize they are learning.
Give students more control over their learning by letting them make their own decisions. Students will LOVE picking desserts for their own shop. Every choice matters, so they need to make choices wisely to plan their profitable business. The team competition for the greatest profit leads the students to begin to analyze more and more, and calculate more and more what pays off better.
