Students estimate the size of one ounce. They use computation and problem solving strategies to determine the unit cost of given items. Pupils explore the question "How much is an ounce of cereal?", as a small bag of cereal is passed around. Students compare the coast per ounce of a variety of cereals and then speculate the reasons for the different prices.
