Lemon & Ice & Everything Nice
This book is math fiction at its best. Math fiction means that the characters use math skills to solve a problem. In this story, Chelle and Ming are selling lemonade, but no one is buying. Perhaps it’s because it’s as expensive as gold? But they have to make $5.00, and what could be easier than selling one glass of lemonade. Maybe they ought to try selling 5 glasses for $1.00 each, or 10 glasses for $.50. Find out how Chelle and Ming reach their money-making goal with a little ingenuity and a lot of sales.
