Hermit Crab Maths Investigation

Hermit Crab

Maths Investigation

In 4v over the last two days Miss Valvo set us a math investigation task. We had to set up a crab enclosure. We also had to pay for it and to make our money we had to fund raise by doing a sausage sizzle. We had to make a price for each sausage. We had to sell our sausages for more that we bought them for so that we make a profit. The first step was we had to add the price we needed for our crab enclosure. Secondly we had to organise the sausages for their price and we had to buy them. We them said if we sold them all how many dollars left over we had.

  1. Hi Miss Valvo and 4V

    Now that’s what I call a fun Maths Investigation! Did every group make enough money for their Hermit Crab enclosures (with realistic sausage prices)? I wonder what was the trickiest part of this investigation?

    Maybe next year you could be in charge of the Sausage Sizzle at the SMOT Fair!

    I LOVE the Silly Sausage song – it’s stuck in my head…

    Miss Y 🙂
