Product Description
A math menu is a list of tasks for students to choose from. This packet consists of real-world problems relating to multiplication of fractions that will allow your students to demonstrate their problem solving skills and their knowledge of multiplying fractions. It is meant to be used at the end of your unit on multiplying fractions.

This 2-4 day activity will allow your students the autonomy to make curriculum choices for themselves. The main tasks are written for a variety of levels, allowing your students to choose tasks that are challenging for themselves. Simply assign the minimum number of activities required for each area and let your students go to work.

The tasks are divided into appetizers, entrées, and desserts. The four appetizers are all meant to give your students a quick warm up that everyone can be successful with. They include working with equivalent fractions, simplifying fractions and addition of fractions. The entrées are the main tasks. There are ten different tasks that progress in difficulty. They include sharing sandwiches, combining bottles of glue, making orange juice, filling boxes of chocolates, adjusting recipes, calculating sale prices, and more. The four dessert pages all focus on mathematical thinking. They allow students to consider justifications about multiplying fractions and analyze errors.

Also included are answer keys and a menu check-off list.
