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.

2V is on a mission to help disadvantaged communities across Australia, Asia and Africa through the Y Generation Against Poverty’s 5cent Challenge.  The aim of the challenge is to collect as many 5cent pieces in JUST 5 WEEKS! The challenge began on the 5th May and will end on the 9th of June.


Today has been 10 days since we started collecting. We found out that twenty 5cent pieces equals $1. We have collected $16 so far and that is a total of 320 5cent pieces.


Our aim is to collect 1000 5cent pieces by the end of the 5 week challenge.
