### Alex's 2nd growing post

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 =

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 FractionsCreate 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.

2.)I tried to do clocks and a Ratio table

3.)First i made a Ratio table thats when I multiplied 2 2/5 to get 12 and i found out 1/2 by dividingQuestion 2You 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 =79/60

2. 6/5 - 11/10=6/60

3. 3/5 + 2/7 =52/60

4. 1/6+1/9 =16/60

Question 3

I wasn't there to do it.

Question 4

1) Each person in group 1 gets 3/4 of the pizza. Each person in group 2 gets 19/20. Each person in group gets 11/12 of the pizza.

2)Each person i group 2 gets 4/5ths of the pizza.

3.)Each person in group 3 gets 5/6ths of the pizza

4.) Each person in the group gets 7/8ths of the pizza.

Question 4 ^

1) What strategies were needed?

The strategies that I used were a ratio table, multiplication, and some division.

2)How did you use these strtegies?

I used them to get 6 cups, 12 cups, and 1/2 a cup.

3)How could you have used these strategies?

I could've used a clock to divide.

**Question 1**

1)The stratiges needed were multiplying dividing fractions.

2)The stratages i used 4 the Test was multiplying and dividing fractions.

3)I would use a ratio table.

4) I would use a ratio table.

**Question 2**

**Question 3**

**Question 4**

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? in group 1 they each get 3/4 of a peice, in group 2 each person gets a 19/20 , in group 3 each person gets 11/12 of a peice and in group 4 each person gets 4/4 of a peice.

Which group gets the largest portion of pizza? the group that gets the largest portion is Group 4 because they get a whole.

I found the answers by useing a pie chart and by dividing.

I used dividing and cutting a pie.

### Liezl's 2nd Growing Post

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.

### Joelle's 2nd Growing Post

The strategies needed in this was money, ratio table, pictures and multiplication/division to solve the problem.

2. How did you use these strategies?

I first made a ratio table, so I could figure out how much the 12 cups cost. After I figure out how much 12 cups cost, the other sizes was easy.

3. Or How could you of used these strategies?

I think I used all of the strategies when I was doing the test.

**4.How would you figure out the price of a 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack mix? Use a ratio table.**

I found out by using this ratio table below this question.

### John's 2nd growing post

The strategies that were needed were using money, pictures, ratio tables, and division/multiplication to solve the problems.

I used multiplication to figure out how to get from 2 2/5 to 12 but I didnt wrong,

and I did the same thing to the 12 cups, and I didn't do the 1/2 cup question.

I could of used the ratio table to find my answers but I used multiplication cause that was all I thought of.

### Jordan's 2nd Growing post

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

*- 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.*

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.

### Kat's 2nd Growing Post

The strategies that were needed were ratio tables, clocks and money.

2. How did you use these strategies?

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.

This is what I did to answer the six test questions. I made the correction to the error I made in the last question.. which was forgetting to put the 1 in 1 and 12/15 on question 6. Sorry that the pictures are sideways...=S

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.
