Lunch in the Park!


Overview You and a group of students have arrived at Citimart with 50,000 dong each. Your objective is to combine the amount of money that you have as a group and purchase a balanced lunch within your budget. Objective #1-You are trying to use the most amount of money that you possibly can without going over your budget. The closer that you are to using all your money the better! You will have to use your computational skills to help you select items for purchasing. Objective #2- With your budget, you have to create a balanced meal that is proportional to a healthy diet. For example, you would want the highest % of your meal made up of bread, cereal and pasta. The smallest % is fats and oils.

Target Vocabulary
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Budget-The amount of money that you have to spend. Fraction-A part represented over a whole. For example: is two parts out of three Decimal-A fractional amount divided. For example 2 divided by 3 is 0.66 Percent-A decimal represented as an amount out of 100% For example: 0.66 = 66% Proportional-A fractional amount compared to another fractional amount: For example is proportional to 6. Inequality-Two amounts compared with a < or > sign because they are not equal to each other.

Learning Plan:
Step 1-Fill in your targets. What fraction, percentage and decimal amounts are you aiming for when you go shopping. Step 2-Go shopping! Stay within your budget. Staple the receipt onto one of your group members papers. Step 3-Put together your meal. We will provide knives, cutting boards and plates. Step 4-Record what fraction, percentages and decimal amounts make up your actual meal under Our Meal Result. Dont worry if its not exact. Its hard to do! Hand into Mr. J Step 5-Eat your lunch!

Reflections

Group successfully purchases meal ingredients within 40,000 dong of their budget or less. Student does an poor job in reflecting on connections between this experience, math and real life applications.

Reflections 1. As you were planning your meal and made targets for your meal, what should the total fractions, decimals and percents add up to in each column? Did yours?

2. Write an inequality that represents the amount of money that you spent and your budget.

3. Write an algebraic expression for a situation where you had to buy something. Include a variable in your expression and explain how your expression translated into a shopping experience.

4. What reflections do you have of this activity? Likes? Dislikes?
