Using ratio to make fruity drinks

30th January 2017

Whilst learning about ratio and proportion in maths, we used our knowledge of ratio to adjust recipes to make the correct amount of an item for a certain number of people.

We made fruity drinks using cranberry juice, orange juice and lemonade. We had to work out how much of each ingredient we needed to make enough drinks for the number of people at each desk.

The children thoroughly enjoyed the lesson as they could link the knowledge they had learnt in maths lessons to real life situations.
