Project-Based Learning (PBL) Activity: CREATE YOUR OWN FRUIT SMOOTHIE RECIPE. If you want your math lessons to be an unforgettable experience for your students, be sure to check out this math enrichment project.
Students will practice math life skills, such as budgeting, shopping, money management (decimals), and writing two-step equations from word problems by working through this project.
This is a Real Life Math Project (PBL) where students are taking part in a competition for the best fruit smoothie recipe.
Students write and solve two-step equations to find missing prices.
Based on a budget, students create their fruit smoothie recipe.
They have to use their imagination to impress the judges.
You can use the higher difficulty level option:
Buy fruit with weight in decimals (e.g. 1.20 kg; 2.35 kg) and round the total price result to the nearest cent.
This product has 10 word problems where students have to write a two-step equation and solve for the variable. These real life word problems only involve positive numbers.
This is a great extension and enrichment for end of the year, back to school, math centers, summer camp, or summer school math activity to practice real-world math (writing and solving two-step equations, money management, adding, subtracting, and multiplying decimals).
Project-Based Learning (PBL) Activity. What is wonderful about it?
It gives your students the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills through meeting challenges, and solving real-world problems, and keeps students engaged.
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.
