#AnShop Supermarket Maths

From Lidl’s Fuel for School supplement. What sort of maths questions can you think of?

1. Which bread is the best value? (Don’t just look at price)
2. Estimate how much it would cost to make a sandwich for everyone in the class. Which bread would be the cheapest option.
3. Graph the class’ favourite bread from the five.
