Marc's First Growing Post


To get 1/2 of 60 i used a clock and cut it in half to get 30 minutes.
To get 1/6 of 60 i used a clock and cut it in 6 equal pieces to get 10 minutes.
That equals 40 min or 40/60 or 4/6
To get 1/4 of 60 i used a clock and cut it into 4 equal pieces to get 15 minutes.
To get 7/12 of 60 i used a clock and cut it into 6 equal pieces then i cut it in half again to make 12 equal pieces. Then once you know what 1/12 of 60 is you multiply it by 7 to get 7/12 of 60.

Marc and Kevin's bike race.

This game is about equivilant fractions. If you get it right you get a pie slice.


7. I got the kilometer markers for 12, 6, and 3 by using using clocks since it's a 60 km race, i cut the clock into 12, 6 and 3. So 1/12 of 60 is 5, 1/6 of 60 is 10, and 1/3 of 60 is 20.


8. To get 1/4 and 3/4 of 16 is to go 16 / 4 then you multiply it by 3.
Another way to get 1/4 and 3/4 of 16 is to find what 1/4 of 16 is and multiply it by 3.
