This King of Cakes lesson plan also includes:
Here is a royal treat for teachers with an activity, lesson plan, and a student worksheet (see additional materials) that is a great discovery opportunity for students to work with real-world fractions. Young learners work on this adventure in math to solve the problem that occurs when a cake loses a portion on the way to a party. The cake is still usable, but the remaining cake will feed fewer people, have fewer calories, cost less in direct relation to the size of the piece that was lost. A direct strategy for solving is not given, but possible answers are provided on solutions page. The facilitator notes also have effective strategies for creating a shared learning experience.
