The Yummy Math website presents mathematics problems and scenarios based on things happening in the world today. For example, an activity for January 26 has students study historical Super Bowl data to reflect on average (mean, median and mode) losing scores, winning scores and range of scores. They are asked to judge which of these central measurements seems the most meaningful and explain their reasoning. Another activity has students plot the cost of a 30-second Super Bowl ad over the past 45 Super Bowls. How has the cost of a Super Bowl ad changed over time? Has it grown linearly? exponentially? Yummy Math lists activities chronologically as well as by mathematics subject area. Two mathematics teachers, Brian Marks and Leslie Lewis, developed Yummy Math and welcome suggestions from other mathematics teachers.
