### emilyr's 2nd Growing post/.

1.What strategies were needed?
The strategies needed were ratio table, division and multiplication.
2.How did you use these strategies?
I used the ratio tables to figure out how much cups of ingredients we need and how much it costs. and I also 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.
3.Or How could you of used these strategies.
I could've just used a ratio table since it was easy because whatever you do in one side you have to do it to the other side. ((:
4.How would you figure out the price of a 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack mix? 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

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 =
I recommend the following. Choose your 4 questions

3] 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 Fractions

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?
Group 1 - 3/4 pizza per kid
Group 2 - 4/5 pizza per kid
Group 3 - 5/6 pizza per kid
Group 4 - 7/8 pizza per kid
Which group gets the largest portion of pizza?
Group 1 gets the most pizzas because
I used circles as the pizzas and a ratio table. for the ratio table i did : for the people you need to bring it to 1 so you have to divide it by the people. and what you do on one side you have to do it on the another side (((:
circles and ratio tables ?

2 stars and a wish
I really liked how you put your growing post all together, it looks really good. I also like how you made your ratio tables, it looks great, and not so plain. I only want to know why you chose group bone to have the most pieces. It needs more explaining, and i got a different answer. But over all it is all good! :)
