Mathematical Modelling Grade 4 - Mathematical Modelling Lesson - Planning the School Breakfast Club

This lesson is the first of two. Students begin the first three steps of the mathematical modeling process: understanding the situation, analyzing the situation, and creating a mathematical model. From an authentic activity, students work together to come up with a simple model and collect the data. This lesson will be followed by a second lesson called Let's Serve Breakfast! where students continue the mathematical modeling process.
