Lexington Elementary School students, parents, and staff recently partnered with Publix at the LES Math Night event to apply their math skills as real-world consumers. Students were given a sheet with math questions that related to grocery store items. Students weighed sphere-shaped vegetables on scales to determine how many could be purchased for $3.00. Other questions focused on comparing prices for different sizes of the same food as well as reading nutritional information. Students were invited to learn how to use the scanning device and register in the checkout aisle with the help of the Publix cashier.
