I wanted my students to stay focused on a day usually filled with lots of sugary treats. I also wanted them to have exposure to the multiple ways of looking at fractions (numerator/denominator. word form, shaded sets) I created this rigorous activity to give the students what they want and also ensuring they were practicing material they need to know.
