This game revolves around selling lemonade.  Change certain parameters to maximize your profits.

Game Rules:

Set the price and recipe for your lemonade, and then buy the materials.  It’s a mathematical optimization problem, but it’s still fun.

Math Skills:

Numerical Estimation – Set the parameters, see what happens, adjust the parameters, and repeat.  This is half-trial and error, half mathematical induction. 

Calculation – Calculate the cost of supplies, and the optimum quantity to have.  This game is an exercise in the mathematics of economics.

Fun Tips:

When it’s hot out, raise the price.  If you buy too many lemons, some will go bad.  Determine the optimum solutions and continually adjust them as the conditions change.  Do the math in your head - and have fun!!!
