We all know and love the famously delicious milkshakes at Peninsula Creamery in Palo Alto. It not only serves great shakes, but is also a great family-friendly place to bring your children! Here at Mathnasium of Palo Alto-Menlo Park we encourage kids to do math in real-world settings, and what better time to do some math than when enjoying a milkshake? Here is a fun way to incorporate division and multiplication into a fun math game for your 2nd – 5th grader for your next trip to Peninsula Creamery.

## Milkshake Math Game with Division & Multiplication:

One Peninsula Creamery milkshake costs \$5.25 for 20 ounces. Try dividing by the number of people at your table to see how many ounces of milkshake each person gets!

If your child is ready for some more difficult problems, try finding how much the milkshake costs per ounce! How much will each person have to chip in to pay for it? These kind of math questions help show the connection between math and the real world—math is everywhere!

Math games like this are fun to do and easy to play with your child at your favorite restaurant, whether it be Palo Alto’s Peninsula Creamery or otherwise!
