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.
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.
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 =
Today in class we reviewed the 6 strategies from the RACE Investigation. They were
Fractions show operations
Ratio Tables (Proportional Reasoning)
Partial Products or the Distributive Property
The Whole Matters
Friendly Fractions. Create a voicethread 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.
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.
Group 1 Sally Bob, Gidget and Biff Share 3 pizzas.
Group 2 Stan, Holly, Barry, Ben and Ichkabibble share 4 pizzas.
Group 3 Eric, Susy,James, Betty, Veronica and Moose share 5 pizzas.
Group 4 Paul, Alex, Chris, Jughead, Archie, Reggie, Mr. Wotherspoon and Midge share 7 pizzas.
-How much pizza does each student get in the different groups?
-Which group gets 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.
Here I used pictures and multiplication and division. The group that got the largest protion was the group 4.
