recipe shopping maths investigation

a maths investigation lesson written to consolidate Y5 children’s learning of converting weights and measures and dealing with money.

With a spaghetti bolognaise recipe, children calculate the ingredients needed for 4, 8 or 10 guests. They then use screenprints from the Tesco website to ‘shop’, finding the best value option for each ingredient.

Excellent paired activity for year 5 or year 6 children to help them understand the importance of these skills and apply them in a real-life context.
