Yummy Math – Real Life Math

Yummy Math provides teachers with an easy way to bring real-life into their math classrooms. It is our belief that when math is explored in contexts that are familiar and of interest to students, students will be more engaged to do math, reason, think critically, question and communicate.  Our activities are written to correspond with the NCTM Process Standards and the CCSS Standards for Mathematical Practice. You can read what our users have said here.

We’ve kept the site updated with multiple activities per week since March 2010 at no charge to teachers. If you have used our material, please consider making a donation to help us continue bringing meaningful mathematics to you and your students.

For example, here is a lesson from Sept 2017 about Hurricanes: https://www.yummymath.com/wp-content/uploads/hurricane2017-update.pdf

  1. Hi Tammy,

    Looking for any math related to combined sewers, sewer system, wipes, flushable wipes, non-flushable wipes, FOG (fats, oil, grease) – like the Turkey one that was out last week or ones about FATBERGS (biggest I’ve heard 110 tonne fatberg); sales of wipes; profits of wipes; plastic in wipes; wipes impact environment; fats, oil, grease and wipes clog pipes; cost to repair infrastructure, cost of water lost due to aging infrastructure; impact of sudden storms on the combined sewer systems. I like the hurricane two page format. Hoping to find something like this about combined sewers and global warming and the impact of sudden storms on our combined sewer systems and the amount of overflow directly into our rivers. For a project working on with the City of London, Ontario and the University of Western – CEL program.
