This is a project for students to do at home. The purpose of this project is for students to make real world connections with fractions.
- Students are to create a pizza. (examples included)
- The toppings should represent the different fractions.
- I gave my students about 2 weeks to complete.
- Includes letter explaining the project to parents, examples and rubric are also included.
The book "Pizza Pizzazz" was read before introducing this project.
* It's also available in Spanish. (Visit the store)
3.3A represent fractions greater than zero and less than or equal to one with denominators of 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8 using concrete objects and pictorial models, including strip diagrams and number lines;
3.3B determine the corresponding fraction greater than zero and less than or equal to one with denominators of 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8 given a specified point on a number line;
3.3C explain that the unit fraction 1/b represents the quantity formed by one part of a whole that has been partitioned into b equal parts where b is a non-zero whole number;
3.3D compose and decompose a fraction a/b with a numerator greater than zero and less than or equal to b as a sum of parts 1/b;
3.3E solve problems involving partitioning an object or a set of objects among two or more recipients using pictorial representations of fractions with denominators of 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8;
3.3F represent equivalent fractions with denominators of 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8 using a variety of objects and pictorial models, including number lines;
3.3G explain that two fractions are equivalent if and only if they are both represented by the same point on the number line or represent the same portion of a same size whole for an area model; and
3.3H compare two fractions having the same numerator or denominator in problems by reasoning about their sizes and justifying the conclusion using symbols, words, objects, and pictorial models.
