9PR Maths in Action
How do we use algebra in everyday life? Using a formula is essential when preparing food for an event to avoid food wastage or under catering.

Mr Moir’s 9 PR Math class got to experience this first hand when they made sushi this week with Mrs Reid in a practical Maths lesson.

If the amount of sushi required is represented by S and the number of people we are catering for is P we can show this below;

S = 4 x P + 10 (for every group of 20 people)

We also learnt a little about the Japanese practice of using chopsticks and traditions before eating “itadakimasu” which means “I appreciate mother nature for what I am about to receive”
