Exploring Ratio with Smoothie Making

In Y6B the children were set the challenge to calculate the number of ingredients needed to make smoothies for 36 children. They had to find a recipe they liked which served 2/4 people and calculate the ingredients using ratio and proportion. Each groups was give a set amount of ingredients and 36 cups to fill. The children worked exceptionally hard as a team and developed their mathematical understanding. Well done 6B you have been a pleasure to teach. My maths group have a real buzz for learning and this makes me really proud! After today’s success we are looking at whether we can sell smoothies at break time to give the children an energy boost.
