Megan's 2nd Growing Post

Question 1: What strategies were needed?- There are many strategies that I could've used such as Ratio tables, clocks, money, and maybe even number lines. You could also use multiplication, adding, subtracting and dividing.

Question 2 : How did you use the strategies?- The strategy I used was the ratio table and did adding and dividing.

Question 3 : How would you use these strategies?- I don't think that money would work that well with this problem but it probably will when dealing with the prices of the ingredient/can. Clocks, to me, doesn't seem to be a very good strategy for this problem since their isn't much fractions that are close to clock strategy. I would prefer using the ratio table for this problem.

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

Question 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

Question 2: The voice thread is above.

Question 3: Bottom voicethread

Me and my partners strategy was to divide the number of pizzas by the number of people and do the same thing to the people to get how many slices per person.

Group one : Sally Bob, Gidget and Biff Share 3 pizzas.

So on this one we divided 4 by 4 which is 1, and then divided 3 by 4 which is 0.75 or 3/4. So each person gets 3/4 of a pizza.

Group 2 Stan, Holly, Barry, Ben and Ichkabibble share 4 pizzas. For this group we divided 5 people by 5 to get 1 and divided 4 by 5 to figure out how many slices per person. And we got 4/5 per person

Group 3 Eric, Susy,James, Betty, Veronica and Moose share 5 pizzas.So group three has 6 people and they have 5 pizzas all together. So you divide 5 by 6 for each pizza slice for each person and we got 5/6.

Group 4 Paul, Alex, Chris, Jughead, Archie, Reggie, Mr. Wotherspoon and Midge share 7 pizzas.So the last group had 8 people and 7 pizzas to share. So again we divided the pizzas by 8 and the people by 8 too and each person has 7/8 of a pizza.

The group that has the larger pieces is group 1

Today and yesterday we were in groups of two and needed to figure out how many minutes did Maria, Marco,Rachel, Josh, Suzanne, Lucia, Eileen, Bob, and Julio do on their laps. This is what i did. Maria = 120mins, 4 circuits/laps, I divided the minutes by the lap. so 120/4 equals 30mins and for 4/4(you do the same thing to the other side for ratio table) it equals 1. So the one tells us that for one lap Maria did, it took her 30mins.

I Did the same thing for everyone elses. Though for the ones who had a fraction as the lap, I x(times) it to make it equal one or turn it into another number and make it turn into a one by dividing.
