NUMB3RS Activity: Have Your Cake and Eat It Too

Students explore an algorithm that evenly divides resources amongst others. They use the "I cut, you choose" method to divide a cake between two people. One person makes a cut to divide the cake into what he or she considers to be two equal parts; the other person chooses the first piece. Finally, students identify how they think two people could agree to fairly divide a cake.

Lesson Planet has given new life to concepts that I have taught for years! It is an awesome resource. I introduced my student teacher to Lesson Planet last year and she is using it this year in her classroom.
