The strategies that were needed were using money, pictures, ratio tables, and division/multiplication to solve the problems.
2.How did you use these strategies?
I used multiplication to figure out how to get from 2 2/5 to 12, then i found out you times it by 5 to get 12 cups. Then to figure out 1/2 cup i used the division strategy to help me.
3.Or 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 out the price of a 6 cup bag of Betty's snack mix, I drew a ratio table like this.
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.
heres the other 3 values.
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.
