Chocolate Box Maths

Chocolate Box Maths

The Year 5 and 6 children have been looking at what maths would be involved in making a box of chocolates.  They have looked at sizing, area, perimeter, nets, scaling, ratio and the year 6 children extended this by working out how they would exactly fit circular chocolates into a rectangular box and how they could make a circular ‘cutter’ so they could reproduce the exact same circular chocolate again and again. 

They then looked at marketing and presentation.  Who would buy their box of chocolates?  What colours would be good to use?  How to make their box stand out from the crowd.  They researched different designs, different names, different advertising slogans and the end results were quite spectacular!

Here is a small range of what the children produced.
