What is sundae math?

My son tells me he is going to be doing sundae math next week and it sounds like fun but I don't know what it is.

Sundae math is just word problems about sundaes that involve some calculations. An example would be: if chocolate and vanilla are 50 cents a scoop and strawberry is 25 cents a scoop. Nuts, whipped cream and cherries are 15 cents each. How much is a particular sundae?


Answer by  juice (41)

Sundae Math is a reward system that teachers are using to reward students for completing their work. It is not really any specific kind of math more of a motivational tool.


Answer by  LohnJaw (122)

It is a method of teaching statistical concepts with ice cream cones. The idea is to figure out in how many different ways you can put together a certain number of flavors (and toppings) on a cone. That way the concepts of statistics are presented in an accessible way which the children can identify with.

One scoop of vanilla, plus one scoop of chocolate, plus one scoop of strawberry, plus a banana, whipped cream, cherries and nuts, plus pineapple syrup equals one banana split.

Sundae maths is maths for little kids. Here is a question for example: A 12 1/2 oz icecream sundae is 3/4 ice cream. How many ounces is made from ice cream? or a 14 2/5 ounce super chizza pizza is 5/12 cheese. How many ounces of cheese does it have?

I have never heard of Sundae math so I looked it up on some very creditable sources. IT must be a made up by the teacher math activity.
