It's time to treat your students to ratios, proportions, fractions and BIG BURGERS! In this activity students explore the ratio of the various ingredients in the world's largest burger (pictured above & in the video below).

Students learn about the initial weight of the giant meat patty and calculate the final weight of the patty after it is cooked.  They decide what percent lean this meat must have been and consider how long it would take their family to eat the entire world-record burger. This is a delicious math activity for exploring ratios, proportions, fractions and percents with kids.
