The only math I ever did with a Hershey’s bar was subtracting two (2) pieces from it to make a s’more. But kids these days are much more sophisticated. They’re now using America’s favorite chocolate bar to help learn fractions. Using questions provided by the Hershey Corporation (no big surprise there), third graders at Pope Elementary in Jackson, TN are finding out that they can use chocolate in math class.

According to this article in the Jackson Sun:

Students have to figure out fractions by moving the individual pieces of the Hershey bar.
“I’m good at learning fractions,” said Will Choate, 9. “But this has made learning it easier and delicious!”

And yes, they do get to eat their chocolate at the end of the lesson.
