Yesterday, I had a post concerning the Most Dangerous Chocolate Cake. Why not follow that up with a yummy chocolate math activity you can use with your students?

If you have older kids, you could simply download the provided pdf at the end of this post and have them work through the math themselves. If you have younger students, you could use an overhead calculator and figure it out as a group activity!

1. Pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate (more than once but less than 10)

2. Multiply this number by 2

3. Add 5

4. Multiply it by 50

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1759. If you haven't, add  1758.
6.Now subtract the four digit year that you were born. You should have a three digit number. 

The  first digit of this was your original number (how many times you want to have chocolate each week). The next two numbers are YOUR AGE!
