Mathalicious: Calories In, Calories Out

How many calories does a body burn each day, and how many does it need?

We know that exercise is one way to burn calories, but is it the only way? Is it even the main way?

In this lesson, students learn the math behind eating and exercise. They use unit rates and expressions to calculate how many calories our bodies burn from exercise, and how many they burn automatically. Finally, they combine this with food and come up with a plan to help someone lose weight.
