PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Multiplying and Dividing Fractions Enrichment
(Gwendolyn's Cupcake Trouble)
Christy Plumley

This is an enrichment worksheet covering multiplying and dividing fractions. I created this download to use in my classroom because every year students come into my Pre-Algebra and Algebra classes with a wide variety of skills with fractions.

I plan to re-teach the processes of multiplying and dividing fractions but for my higher level students who don't need more practice, I wanted to push them to use their knowledge of fractions in a real world problem: Baking with recipes!

This activity presents the students with two recipes. The end goal is to have enough cupcakes to feed 100 people at a get-together.

The first recipe is too small and all ingredients need to be multiplied to make a quadruple batch of cupcakes, the second is a "bakery size" recipe for icing which makes too much icing, and they need to divide the ingredients to get the amount needed.

Amounts of ingredients are given in fractions and mixed numbers. There are a couple whole numbers, but not many.
