I love tasks! These tasks give students the opportunity to solve problems on their own terms, in their own way, or with a partner to help out. It's cool to see how different students come up with correct answers in such different ways.
There are two tasks:
*The Birthday Cake - students will divide a cake for 4 possible scenarios and determine various fractions of the cake, depending on the scenario.
*Color the Cars - students will help Sam color the cars in the factory and determine fractions of the sets of cars.
