ActivActivity–January 16-17, 2013

Remember when we were in the middle of our fraction unit and we were dividing?  Think about the problem about bows: Avery had 6 yards of ribbon.  He’s making bows for packages, and each bow uses 1/3 of a yard of ribbon.  How many bows can he make?  Then think about how we all said 1/18 for the answer?  I’ll remind you of how we solved it:

Today your job is to create a fraction problem with division.  I’m not going to tell you what the answer has to be–I want you to figure out that part, too!  You can divide a whole number by a fraction (like this one), or you can divide a fraction by a whole number if you remember how to do that.  Remember to make sure your story makes sense, that you have an answer that is LOGICAL, and that you sign your names so we know who’s amazing thinking it is! Good luck, friends!
