# Palo Alto Summer Math Camp

It is not too late to sign your child up for Palo Alto – Menlo Park Mathnasium’s summer math camp. At each session, your child will go over previously learned material as well as learn new things too. We will help your child prepare for the upcoming school year so that math class will be breeze. Since most kids do not want to spend their summer doing math, treat them before or after their session to a yummy meal. A great place to eat lunch after a session at Mathnasium’s summer math camp is at Corner Bakery Cafe in Palo Alto.

Their lunch menu includes sandwiches (hot and cold), salads, pastas, and soups. They also have a great bakery selection which makes for a perfect dessert after lunch. Here are some questions you can ask your child as you wait for your food.

1. You order a chicken pesto on ciabatta ficelle (\$7.99) and your child orders a mac & 3 cheese (\$7.79). How much does the meal cost altogether? How much does it cost with tax if tax is 9.50%?
2. The bowl the mac & cheese comes in has a radius of 3 inches and a height of 2 inches. What is the volume of the bowl? If each pasta has a volume of .2 inches, how many pasta can fit in the bowl?
3. Corner Bakery’s lunch menu has approximately 35 items. Of the 35 items, 4 are pastas, 5 are paninis, 7 are signature sandwiches, 3 are combos, 2 are soups/chilis, and 14 are salads. What is the probability that you will choose a pasta? Panini? Signature sandwich? Combo? Soup/chili? Salad?
4. Corner Bakery Cafe is 2.9 miles away from Palo Alto – Menlo Park Mathnasium’s summer math camp. If you drive at 35 mph (assume no traffic and no stop lights) how long will it take you to get to the Cafe from Mathnasium?
