Description

This fun activity helps review fraction operations learned in 5th grade with pizza! All students need is a pizza box (or poster board), and they are ready to tackle this yummy project :)

Topics reviewed:
Reducing Fractions
Writing Equivalent Fractions
Adding, Subtracting, Multiplying & Dividing Fractions

Quick overview-
Students will create a pizza and need to list the fractions represented on their pizza. There are certain criteria that the student must meet ( ex. at least 6 toppings, at least 8 slices, and at least 4 different fractions represented on the pizza).
Students must also make a pizza topping key including the original fraction in simplest form, and then three equivalent fractions. The last thing students will do is create word problems involving the fractions used for the pizza toppings.

This packet helps guide the students before they actually make their final project. It also has a rubric included that you can use when assessing your students.

If you like this project, but would like the Word Document instead to make changes that would better suit your class, please email me and I am more than happy to send it to you :)

Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
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?
Interpret division of a whole number by a unit fraction, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for 4 ÷ (1/5), and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that 4 ÷ (1/5) = 20 because 20 × (1/5) = 4.
Interpret division of a unit fraction by a non-zero whole number, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for (1/3) ÷ 4, and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (1/3) ÷ 4 = 1/12 because (1/12) × 4 = 1/3.
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.
