Ratios, Volumes and Packaging

Pre voc students
​Pre-voc students making maths real

​The Year 12 Prevocational Maths students made their maths real by combining the mathematical concepts of ratio (ingredients in the trail mix), volumes of the package needed and nets for packaging the trail mix in a cost effective way. They saw how each aspect of maths contributed to create a final product. They also learnt about the 6 food nutrients that were included in the combination of ingredients in the trail mix. Of course, they all agreed that the best part of the exercise was being able to eat the trail mix at the end. They did concede that Maths can be fun!
