This activity gives students great practice with long division and calculating unit rates. It also reinforces another more important idea: math is extremely useful in all aspects of life. Plus, it's just plain fun!
This activity is great for 6th or 7th graders. I use this with my 7th graders at the beginning on my proportional reasoning unit to prepare them for lots of new thinking on unit rates and proportions.
