Question 1.

1.What strategies were needed?
the were multiplucation, division, adding, subtracting, double number line, money and fractions.

2.How did you use these strategies?
I didn't use all of them all the stratagies I used were: fractions, and adding.

3.Or How could you of used these strategies.
I could use they more better and put more ideas in it.

4.How would you figure out the price of a 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack mix? Use a ratio table
I could have used a ratio table but i don't understand how to use a ratio table.

5.
Find 3 other values (amounts of Snack Mix) that could be solved using the same ratio table. Find the \$\$ of your new container sizes.
I can not find 3 other values for the snack mix on my test.

Question 2.

You are going to create a voicethread explaining the strategies you used on your test. You need to choose 4 out of the 6 questions.

1. 2/3 + 1/4 + 2/5 =

2. 6/5 - 11/10=

3. 3/5 + 2/7 =

4. 1/6/+1/9 =

5. 5/6 - 1/4 =

6. 3 3/5 - 1 4/5 =

### Liezl's 2nd Growing Post

QUESTION ONE

a. the strategies that i used for this test were multiplication and division.
- i used multiplication to get from 2 2/5 to 12 CUPS
- i used division to get from 12 to 1/2 CUP

b. i didn't use a ratio table, but if i did, i'd use it to find out the cost of the cups

c. Betty's 6 cup snack mix

These are my 3 other values

QUESTION FOUR

Group 1: Since there is three people and four people, i wrote down the numbers of pizzas and divided them into four for each person, so each person gets 3/4 of pizza and then i multiplied the number of people to the number of pizzas. 4 x 3 = 12

Group 2: Each person in this group gets 4/5 of the whole pizza.
Group 3: I multiplied five to get 40 pizzas and then divided them into 40 to get 6 1/2 for every person.

Group 4: I multiplied 7 pizzas to 8 the number of pieces and was 56 pieces all together and then i divided 8 which was the number of people to get 7 pieces of pizza.

Question.1
1.) What strategies were needed?
-The strategies that were needed was money, clocks, multiplication, division, ratio tables and also picture in order to solve this problem.

2.) How did you use these strategies?
- I used these strategies to help me find out how much was needed for the snack mix and how much it would cost.

3.)How could you of used these strategies?
- I could've just used a ratio table to help me, but i used the multiplication since I thought it was easier and faster to figure out everything. The ratio table is also a good help since you can divide the sections like how much cups, shreddies, peanuts, pretzels, and how much it costs.

4.)How would you figure out the price of a 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack mix? Use a ratio table
- To find the price of six cup snack mix i made a ratio table like this :

QUETION 1
1.What strategies were needed?
The strategies that were needed was money/clocks, multiplication, division, ratio tables and also picture in order to solve this problem.

2.How did you use these strategies?
I used the strategies in order to find out how much ingridients that was needed to make the snack mix and to find the cost.

3.Or How could you of used these strategies.
I could have usewd a ratio table to make it very simple and neat.

4.How would you figure out the price of a 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack mix? Use a ratio table.
In order to find out the price of a 6 cup bag is to x 2/5 by 5 so you could get 12 and you do the same thing to the price (3.60 x 5= 18.00) because what you do to one side you have to do to the other side. Then you divide 12 by 2 to get 6 and the price divide by two to get 9.00.

Question 2

Question 3

question 4

I took this picture from dhonell since im not sure where mine is right now,because someone lost mine"carmen" .

How much pizza does each student get in the different groups?

Group 1 Sally Bob, Gidget and Biff Share 3 pizzas.
each person gets 3/4 of pizza
Group 2 Stan, Holly, Barry, Ben and Ichkabibble share 4 pizzas.
each person gets 4/5 of pizza
Group 3 Eric, Susy,James, Betty, Veronica and Moose share 5 pizzas.
each person gets 5/6 of pizza
Group 4 Paul, Alex, Chris, Jughead, Archie, Reggie, Mr. Wotherspoon and Midge share 7 pizzas.
each person gets 7/8 of pizza
Show how you found your answer in 2 different ways.
for our strategy we drew circles and divided them in equal pieces then we used fractions after to solve how much eacher person got.

Group 1: in group 1 there is 3 pizzas and four people, i drew 3 pizzas and divided each of the pizzas by the number of people. in each pizza 1 person will get 1/4 then for all of of them it would equal 3/4.
Group 2: its the same thing for this one but theres 5 people and 4 pizzas only i did the same thing again drew a circle and divided that circle in 5 each person would get 4/5 from all 4 of those pizzas.Group 3: i multiplied 5 x 6 = 30 then divided it by the number of people "6" = 5/6 for all 5 of the pizza wholes.
Group 4: I multiplied 7 pizzas to 8 the number of people it = 56 pizza pieces all together from those 7 pizzas and then i divided it by 8 since there is 8 people. then it ended up giving 7 the 7 means each person gets 7 pieces from the pizzas.

Which group gets the largest portion of pizza?
Group 4 gets the largest portion of the pizza.

What strategies did you use in finding your answer.
The strategies we used were using circles and dividing them into equal pieces so you can divide how much a person gets for each pizza.

Show your answer is 2 different ways. I would recommend that you create a voicethread of your work.
we couldve used money like pretend each whole pizza was a 1\$ then just divide that pizza on how many people were there then you get a decimal number then you change it to a fraction.
Then draw a circle to represent a whole pizza, and then divide it on how many people were there then at the end found like how many of them get 1 piece on a pizza so like if there was 3 pizzas and 4 people each person would get 3/4.

I used a ratio table to find out the cost of the differently sized cups.

3. Or How could you of used these strategies.
I could have used more than one strategy to help me check my work to make sure it was right.

4. How would you figure out the price of a 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack mix?
I used a ratio table. I went straight from 2 2/5 cups to 12 cups by multiplying 2 2/5 by 5, and I did the same thing with \$3.60, which equaled \$18.00. I then divided 12 by 2 to get 6 cups, and I did \$18.00 divided by 2 to get \$9.00.

5. Find 3 other values (amounts of snack mix) that could be solved using the same ratio table. Find the money of your new container sizes.

6. Find the \$\$ of your new container sizes

1.The strategies that were needed were a ratio table and division/multiplacation.
2. For the ratio table, I put cups on one side and money on the other side. Then multiplied 2 2/5 to get 12. Then found out it was times 5. Then did that to the money. Then divided to get 1/2 cups.
3. Another way to use this strategey is add 2 2/5 instead of multiplying them.
4. To get 6 cups you get 12 cups then divide it in 2. So it will equal 6 cups and do the same thing to the money so it will equal 9 dollars.
5 and 6. The numbers I chose was 1, 5, 10.
To get 1 cup I multipled the money so it will equal for 1 cup.
To get 5 cups I multiplied 1 cup and the money by 5 so it will = 5 cups worth.
To get 10 cups I multiplied 5 cups and the money by 2 to get 10 cups of stuff.

1: The strategies I had used were ratio tables, division, multiplying, and adding

2 : I used this strategy to find out how much ingredients are needed and the cost of the cup.
I took 2 and 2/5 and multiplied by how much was needed to get 12. Which was by 5.
Heres a picture.

3. I could've used money or a ratio table, which was probably easier. ._.

4: I took 2 and 2/5 and multiplied it by 5 which got to 12 then to get to 6 cups I divided it by 2,

### Mary's Second Growing Post

Question One
(a) The strategies that i used for this test were multiplication and division. (a2) I used multiplication to figure out how to get from 2 2/5 to 12. That helped me find out how to solve the other ingredients. The division helped me solve the answer to the ingredients for the 1/2 cup.

(b) I could of used ratio tables, but i didn't. If i did use them, i'd use them to find out the answers for the costs and the cups of ingredients.

(c) Since you can get from 2 2/5 to 12 pretty easily, i would just use the information from the 12 cup container and divide the answers by two, since you can get from 12 to 6 by dividing 12 by two.

(d) These are the three other values that i chose to do, and this is how i would use a ratio table to solve them.

> Question One
1 . What strategies were needed?
The strategies that I used to correct my test were ratio tables, multiplying & dividing .
2 . How did you use these strategies?
On my real test, I regret that I thought that the only strategy that could be used was multiplying . Because when I saw that 2 2/5 x 5 was 12 (cups) , I just multiplied everything else by 5 , then I couldn't work with decimals so I didn't do the 1/2 cup question . I should have put everything in fraction form so it would look simpler .
3 . How could you of used these strategies.
I should have used more of dividing & ratio tables. if i could find out what 12 cups was by multiplying , i could have found out what 1/2 cup was by dividing . And to get there easily I should have used ratio tables to show my work more clearly .
4 . How would you figure out the price of a 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack mix? Use a ratio table.

5 . Find 3 other values that could be solved using the same ratio table. Find the \$\$ of your new container sizes.

>Question 2
You are going to create a voice thread explaining the strategies you used on your test. You need to choose 4 out of the 6 questions.

> Question 3
Today in class we reviewed the 6 strategies from the RACE Investigation. They were
• Equivalence
• Fractions show operations
• Ratio Tables (Proportional Reasoning)
• Measurement
• Partial Products or the Distributive Property
• The Whole Matters
• Friendly Fractions
Create a voice thread or write and use pictures to describe how you would uses those strategies to explain how far the two students would have run if Mark ran 7/8 and Rachel ran 11/12 of the RACE course.

> Question 4
Your last question deals with pizza. You need to explain which group gets the largest portion of pizza. All student groups get the same sized pizzas. It is up to you to cut them up so that they are shared equally.

1. Group 1 Sally Bob, Gidget and Biff Share 3 pizzas.
2. Group 2 Stan, Holly, Barry, Ben and Ichkabibble share 4 pizzas.
3. Group 3 Eric, Susy,James, Betty, Veronica and Moose share 5 pizzas.
4. Group 4 Paul, Alex, Chris, Jughead, Archie, Reggie, Mr. Wotherspoon and Midge share 7 pizzas.

+ For the first strategy i used pictures and fractions to get to the answer.
+ For the second strategy i used money to get to the answer . I changed the pizzas into dollars . So if there are 3 pizzas , its changed to \$3.00 . Then , you divide the pizza into the people .

* How much pizza does each student get in the different groups?
* Which group gets the largest portion of pizza?
-----> The 4th group had the largest portion of pizza .
* Show how you found your answer in 2 different ways.
* What strategies did you use in finding your answer.
* Show your answer is 2 different ways. I would recommend that you create a voicethread of your work.

In class today Mr. Jerema gave us questions.
He wrote on the board :
- 1/2 of 36 =
- 1/4 of 36 =
- 1/8 of 36 =
- 5/8 of 36 =

To make things simpler, i just switched the question into an easier form.
- 36 divided by (1/2) 2 = 18
- 36 divided by (1/4) 4 = 9
- 36 divided by (1/8) 8 = 4.5

It was easy to find out what 1/4 and 1/8 because 1/4 is just half of 1/2 . so if 1/2 = 18 . Then 18 divided by 2 = 9 (1/4) . Then 1/8 is half of 1/4 . So 9(1/4) divided by 2 = 4.5 (1/8).

The 5/8 question was harder but you have to make it into a simpler form .
5/8 don't go nice together so you make it into 4/8 . Since 4/8 is another way of saying 1/2 , you get the answer that you got for the first question which was 18 .
Then , since you only have 1/8 left , again you just get the answer you got for the third question , which was 4.5 .

So basically , you're just adding question 1 & 3 together to get question 4 .
So the answer is (18 + 4.5 =) 22.5 .

1. I used ratio tables to find my answers, what also helped me was the use of money.

2 and 3

You pretty much get the picture.

You need to choose 4 out of the 6 questions.
1. 2/3 + 1/4 + 2/5 =
2. 6/5 - 11/10=
3. 3/5 + 2/7 =
4. 1/6/+1/9 =
5. 5/6 - 1/4 =
6. 3 3/5 - 1 4/5 =

1. Strategies

The strategies i used to get the answers were dividing and multiplying .

2.how i used this strategy:

12 cups
2 2/5 * 5 = 12

SHREDDIES - 1 1/5 * 5 = 6 cups

PEANUTS - 4/5 * 5 = 4 cups

PRETZELS - 2/5 * 5 = 2 cups

6 + 4 + 2 =12 CUPS

i multiplied the cups by 5 because 2 2/5 multiplied by 5 equals 12.

1/2 CUP
12 / 24 = 0.50 or 1/2

SHREDDIES - 6 / 24 = 3 / 3/12

PEANUTS - 4 / 24 =2 / 2/12

PRETZELS - 2 / 24 =1 / 1/12

3 + 2 + 1 = 6 is half of 12 equals 1/2

i divided the answers of the 12 cups by 24 because 12 divided by 24 equals 0.50 / 1/2 cup.

*How much pizza does each student get in the different groups?
G1-3 pizzas, 4 people
each get 3/4 of pizza

G2-4 pizzas, 5 people
each get 4/5 of pizza

G3-5 pizzas, 6 people
each get 5/6 of pizza

G4-7 pizzas, 8 people
each get 7/8 of pizza

*Which group gets the largest portion of pizza?
G4 gets largest portion of pizza because they get 7/8 of the pizzas

*Show how you found your answer in 2 different ways.
For my strategie using circles I just cut the circles up into equal pieces and then used fractions.

For my strategie uing money I made the pizzas into dollars so it ould look like 3 pizzas equals \$3.00 then i would divide the \$3.00 by the number of people their sharing the pizzas with then it would give us a decimal answer then you would convert into a fraction.

*What strategies did you use in finding your answer.
Strategie #1: using circles
Strategie #2: using money

*Show your answer is 2 different ways. I would recommend that you create a voicethread of your work.

### Carmen's scribe, test

For question 2 i did not know how i got my answers 3/12, 2/12 and 1/12 so as my correction i used ratio tables shown above.
