Jordan's 2nd Growing Post

QUESTION 1 pt. 1: What strategies were needed?
answer: We needed to use ratio tables to figure out how to get the amount of ingredients for the different sized cups. We also could have used double number lines to figure out fractions!

QUESTION 1 pt. 2: How did you use these strategies?
answer: I used the ratio tables to get the amount of ingredients for 12 cups and 1/2 of a cup.

QUESTION 1 pt. 3: How could you use these strategies?
answer: I could have also used ratio tables to solve the rest of the questions but I wanted to have some variety
QUESTION 1 pt. 4: How would you figure out the price of a 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack mix? Use a ratio table.
QUESTION 1 pt. 5: Find 3 other values that could be solved using the same ratio table.
( I combined pt. 4 with pt. 5 )

QUESTION 3: 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.
Explain using:

Fractions show operations
Ratio Tables (Proportional Reasoning)
Partial Products or the Distributive Property
The Whole Matters
Friendly Fractions

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.


in group 1, the kids get 3/4 of a pizza, in group 2, they get 4/5, in group 3, they get 5/6, in group 4 they get 7/8.

since 7/8 > 3/4, 4/5, and 5/6, group 4 got the most portions

i used ratio tables and a formula to answer the questions.

blah. harbeeck >_>
MERRY CHRISTMAS! ...and a happy new year!!
