What were the strategies needed?
the strategy i mainly used was the ratio table method. Within the ratio table, there are multiplication and division strategies as well.
How did you use these strategies?
Or how could you of used these strategies.
i used these strategies for figuring out the cups or price or amount of ingredients. Like say to get from 2 2/5 to 12 cup mix. You have to times by 5. Thats the ratio multiplication strategy.
How would you figure out the price of a 6 cup bag of BSM? use a ratio table.
Find 3 other values (amounts of Snack Mix) that could be solved using the same ratio table. Find the $$ of your new container sizes.
we can have 4 cups. the price would be $6 since we divide 12 cups into 3.
we can have 8 c ups. the price is $12 since we times 4 cups by 2.
we can have 16 cups. just add 12 & 4 cups, or times 8 cups by 2. the prive would be 24 dollars
You are going to create a voicethread explaining the strategies you used on your test. You need to choose 4 out of the 6 questions.
(1). 2/3 + 1/4 + 2/5 =
(2). 6/5 + 11/10=
(3). 3/5 + 2/7 =
4. 1/6/+1/9 =
(5). 5/6 - 1/4 =
6. 3 3/5 - 1 4/5 =
*You can use the clock method for all those 4 circled numbers.
I recommend the following. Choose your 4 questions. On plain pieces of white paper redo them like you did on your test. Make sure your drawings are large enough. Take a picture of them and save them to your desktop. Upload these images to voicethread and embed your voicethread into your blog.
At voicethread you need to describe what you did to solve the problems. How did you use clocks, money etc to solve the questions. You need a minimum of 2 comments on each picture.Here is a video explaining how to make a voicethead and embed it into your post. You should have both of these questions done by the end of the weekend.
