This Notebook file contains a brief fraction review including equivalent fractions, mixed numbers, and multiplying fractions.
It is followed by two open ended math problems. They are meant to be solved with partners or in small groups. There is more than one way to approach and solve each problem. These problems will require your students to engage in a productive struggle which is why they are suitable for small groups.
The first problem is a fraction problem involving a recipe. The second problem involves money and capacity measurement.
Both are examples of real life problem solving.
