    Homework for week 10

    Optional activity – For those who wish to have a challenge. (Well done Sebastian – already done!)

    As you have been so busy celebrating the Queen’s 90th birthday, the homework task recognises the short week. I hope everyone has prepared their brief talk about an organisation that assists those affected by natural disasters.




    Here is the problem you are going to investigate this week.

    Your teachers want to see how you go about working your way through a problem.

    What strategies will you use?

    Will you make the problem?

    Draw the problem?

    Discuss the problem?

    How will you show others your thinking?

    Show your mathematical thinking clearly. You can use any resources you like.


    Students were preparing to run a stall selling ‘spider drinks’ at the school fair. They were asked to create a
    simple budget to run the stall and work out how much ice-cream, soft drink and cups they could buy within their
    budget. The cost of ingredients and cups were provided to the students as follows:
    Total funds: $150.00. Show clearly how you are going to spend this $150.00
    Ice-cream: $3.50 per 4-litre container
    Soft drink: $2.00 per 1-litre or $2.50 for 2 litres
    Plastic cups: $1.99 for 25 cups
    Show your working out anyway you like. PS- if you don’t know what a ‘spider drink’ is, it is a softdrink with a scoop of icecream floating on top.

    Hint- how many mls will your cup hold? How many cups can you get from 1 litre? How many scoops of icecream will you get from 1 tub?

    Get the idea.  You can use your iPad to present your findings if you like.
