Cake Cutting


You have probably heard the question "What is a fair way for 2 kids to share a cake?" The answer is: "One kid cuts the cake and the other picks which piece to take." But what if there are more than 2 kids? This lesson addresses that question. At the end, the students get to practice what they have learned by splitting a real cupcake or cookie.
