Take me to the Movies

By Sora Students

Can you smell the popcorn? In this immersive Middle School math project, students explore the mathematics behind a trip to the movies and try their hand at business management using Roblox to turn algebra into a cinematic experience.

During this project, students:

  • Use data tables, graphs, variables, and expressions to model the cost of a movie outing for various families.
  • Delve into the world of business management, considering the operating costs of a movie theater.
  • Harness the power of algebra to set strategic prices and generate profits, ensuring the projectors keep rolling and the popcorn keeps popping!
  • Gather data on ticket costs (for adults and children at different showtimes) and concession prices at their local theater.
