7.3 b Camp Lunch Students are to draw and use C-Rods to solve the following word problems regarding a camp lunch. I used this in my middle school math center.
Sample Task:On the last day of camp, the cook served pizza. The camp dining room has two kinds of tables. A large table seats 10 people, and a small table seats 8 people. The cook tells the students who are serving dinner to put four pizzas on each large table, and three pizzas on each small table.
If the pizzas at the tables are shared equally by everyone at the table, will a person sitting at a small table get the same amount of pizza as a person sitting at a large table? Explain your reasoning.
