Mrs. Rambone’s Math class enjoyed a fun-filled afternoon at the Decimal Cafė! First we got to order a meal off of a menu, dressed like adults in fancy business clothes!  But in order to pay for our meal, we had to add, subtract, multiply, and divide with decimals, which taught us about the real-world situation of dining with colleagues. This also helped us review our standards for the upcoming unit assessment. Everyone in each group had the challenge of completing eight problems but arriving at the same answer! As soon as the group was finished, they could help Chef Rambone pass out the delicious meal (treats sent in by our parents!). Everyone in the class gave the Decimal Cafė a 5 star rating! ....Written by Riley Ranson
