This FBI: Fraction Bakery Investigation is a fun no-prep Math Review for fraction skills. This project focuses on addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of proper and improper fractions and mixed numbers. Some problems require finding the LCD and converting fractions to like terms before solving. This file includes both color and black & white versions (each 20 pages).

FBI Math Investigations get your students excited about practicing math! Everything you need is included. Students solve clues using fraction skills to investigate:

• Location (add & subtract fractions, find LCD)
• Opportunity (multiply fractions)
• Motive (add & multiply fractions & mixed numbers)
• Accomplice (divide fractions)
• Crack the Code (fraction & mixed number skills)

Once the student has all the clues, they need to use their powers of deduction to complete the Case Report and issue the Warrant for their suspect.

Solve real world problems involving division of unit fractions by non-zero whole numbers and division of whole numbers by unit fractions, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. For example, how much chocolate will each person get if 3 people share 1/2 lb of chocolate equally? How many 1/3-cup servings are in 2 cups of raisins?
Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions.
Solve real world problems involving multiplication of fractions and mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.
Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction or whole number by a fraction.
Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator (𝘢/𝘣 = 𝘢 ÷ 𝘣). Solve word problems involving division of whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. For example, interpret 3/4 as the result of dividing 3 by 4, noting that 3/4 multiplied by 4 equals 3, and that when 3 wholes are shared equally among 4 people each person has a share of size 3/4. If 9 people want to share a 50-pound sack of rice equally by weight, how many pounds of rice should each person get? Between what two whole numbers does your answer lie?
