### Chaseley's First Growing Post

1/2 of a clock would be 30 minutes because 60 ÷ 2 = 30.

1/6 of a clock would be 10 minutes because 60 ÷ 6 = 10.

30 + 10 = 40 or 4/6

----------------------------------------------------------------

1/4 of a clock would be 15 minutes ( 60 ÷ 4 = 15 )

7/12 of a clock would be 35 minutes (60 ÷ 12 = 5 x 7=35)

15 + 35 = 50 or 5/6

so that means 1/4 + 7/12 is larger than 1/2 + 1/6.

5. One thing about our bike race is that we used a

legend to mark the stations so it would be more

organized instead of all over the place. Another thing

would be how we made the map. We labeled the

map by every km mark.

------------------------------------------------------

7. What we did for the bike race was divide how

long the bike race was (60 km) by how much every

km mark it was at. (eg . 60 ÷ 12 = 5 , so we marked every km marking

every time by counting by 5's.) thats also what we did with the third and sixth.

(third= 60 ÷ 3 = 20) (sixth= 60 ÷ 6 = 10) we also showed our work by using the

chopping method. we kept repeating this method when we

did the other stations too. I've noticed that when it is half way

through the race all the stations are in one place. same goes

when you are done the race. Another pattern would be when

we count by 5,10,20... and 20,40,60... etc.

This game is really great, its all about adding fractions together.

If you're not at good at adding fractions that much you can go

on easy. Theres also other kinds of games you can play like

subtracting fractions , dividing and many more.Its like everytime

you add a fraction you get a score! I think its good because in

class we all learned about how to add fractions.This is just another

way of adding fractions in a fun way.

8. one way of finding 3/4 of 22 would be:

1.) 22 ÷ 2 = 11

2.) 11 ÷ 2 = 5.5

3.) 11+5.5= 16.5

another way to find 3/4 of 22 would be:

1.) 22 ÷ 4 x 3 = 16.5

9. question: find which fraction is larger and show your work.

4/12 + 1/3 < 1/4 + 10/12

-------------------------------------------------------

60 ÷ 12 = 5 x 4 = 20 minutes

60 ÷ 3 = 20 minutes

20 + 20 = 40

**so 4/12 + 1/3 = 40/60 or 4/6

-----------------------------------------

60 ÷ 4 = 15 minutes

60 ÷ 12 = 5 x 10 = 50 minutes

15+50= 65

**so 1/4 + 10/12 = 65/60 or 1 hour and minutes

-----------------------------------------

if you compare the two 65/60 is larger than 40/60.
