### Hoppietonights (Jon's) 2nd Growing Post

1.What strategies were needed?

I used Ratio table, Multipication, and division(I think).

2.How did you use these strategies?

The Ratio table helped me figure out ingredients and money. Multipication and Division are the master planners behind this plot.

3.Or How could you of used these strategies.

I used this stratagy by using the Multipication and Division with the Ratio table.

4.How would you figure out the price of a 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack mix? Use a ratio table

5.Find 3 other values (amounts of Snack Mix) that could be solved using the same ratio table. Find the \$\$ of your new container sizes.

1. 2/3 + 1/4 + 2/5 = 40/60 + 15/60 + 24/60 = 79/60 = 1 19/60

2. 6/5 - 11/10= 12/10 - 11/10 = 1/10

3. 3/5 + 2/7 = 21/35 + 10/35 = 31/35

4. 1/6 + 1/9 = 3/18 + 2/18 = 5/18

Equivalence-

I'm figuring out how much miles 7/8 and 11/12 is first.

26Miles

7/8= 4/8=13 Miles

3/8=9 3/4 Miles

1/8=3 1/4 Miles

Add 4/8 and 3/8 together... 7/8=22 3/4 miles

11/12=6/11=13 Miles

5/11=10 5/5 Miles

1/11= 2 1/5 Miles

Add 6/11 and 5/11 together... 11/12=23 5/5

Fractions show operations-

7/8 of 26 means 7/8x26

11/12 of 26 means 11/12x26

Ratio Tables (Proportional Reasoning)-

Measurement -

7/8= 1/8+1/8+1/8+1/8+1/8+1/8+1/8=7/8

11/12= 1/12+1/12+1/12+1/12+1/12+1/12+1/12+1/12+1/12+1/12+1/12=11/12

Partial Products or the Distributive Property-

7/8=4/8+3/8=13Miles+9 3/4 Miles= 22 3/4 Miles

11/12=6/11+5/11=13miles+10 5/5 Miles= 23 5/5 Miles

The Whole Matters-

7/8 Both are using 26 miles.

11/12

Friendly Fractions-

1/8=3 1/4 Miles

7x1/8=7/8

7x3 1/4= 23 5/5

1/12= 2 1/5 Miles

11x1/12= 11/12

11x2 1/5= 23 5/5

How much pizza does each student get in the different groups?

In group 1 4 kids got 3 pieces of pizza each. In group 2 5 kids got 4 pieces each. In group 3 6 kids got 5 pieces each. In group 4 8 kids got 7 pizzas each.
Which group gets the largest portion of pizza?

Group 4 got the largest portion.

I used a Ratio Table and Circles (Pizzas). Another way is I noticed... Group number 2 for example. 4 Pieces each. 5 kids 4 pizzas. Slices it 5 ways evenly (Look at the 5 kids). Then they got 4 each (Look at the 4 pizzas)

Ratio table, Division, and fractions.

THIS IS WHAT THE FRACTION TEST LOOKS LIKE:

Betty's Snack Mix

Questions 1:
1. What strategies were needed?
-the strategies I've used was multiplication and division.
2. How did you use these strategies?
- I used it by multiplying and dividing the fractions.
3. Or How could you of used these strategies?
- I've used this kind of strategies because for me it's easier if i did it that way.
4. How would you figure out the price of a 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack mix? Use a ratio table

5. Find 3 other values (amounts of Snack Mix) that could be solved using the same ratio table. Find the \$\$ of your new container sizes.

Question 2:

Question 3:

Question 4:

*How much pizza does each student get in the different groups?

Group 1 would get 3/4 of a pizza.

Group 2 would get 4/5 of a pizza.

Group 3 would get 5/6 of a pizza.

Group 4 would get 7/8 of a pizza.

*Which group gets the largest portion of pizza?

The group who got the largest portion of the pizza was the group 1, as you can see the illustration in my voicethread the group has the largest portion while the 4th group got the smallest portion because the many you are the smaller portion you could get. Since the 1st group had the fewest number of person the divisions of portions they would get are larger.

The strategies I used used were the fraction illustration and the ratio table.

My Self Evaluation:
Question 1:
I think I've done my work in terms of the questions to be answered but the only thing is that I was'nt able to answer it on time. (12 marks)
Question 2:(10 marks)

1.
The stratigies used were ratio table, multiplication and also divison.

2.
At first with the betty's snack mix problem I used a ratio table and times it by five which got me 12 cups and 18 dollars. Next Idiveded both by two. after that I divided the numbers I got by two again. later I divided the 1 cup and \$1.50 by 3 and got one half cup and 75 cents.

3.
I can use these stratigies staratigies to figure out the ingredients and the price of betty's snack mix

4.
By using a ratio table I did all my divison and multiplying and still got all the answers.

Question 2.

for this one I just did the stratigie in clock form and did the numbers of how many it would be in a clock and I added it all togther and got an hour and 7 minutes.

For this one I basically did the same thing except instead of adding it in the end I subtracted it and got 35 minutes.

this one I mostly did the same thing except there was 3 whole and one whole so those would be hours, and yet again I added it all up and got the answer of 5 hours and 14 minutes.

;">The strategies were neede is ratio table to get the price and division and multiplication.

2.How did you use these strategies?
by using the ration table, i can solve how many cup of ingridients and how much it cost. multiplication and division can help to like on the ratio table.

;">3.Or How could you of used these strategies.

i can use this method to figure out how much of ingredients on the given cups like this 1 1/5 multiply by 5 is 6 cups 4/5 multiply by 5 is 4 cups 2/5 multiply by 5 is 2 cups equals to 12 cups

4.How would you figure out the price of a 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack mix?

Use a ratio table. i divided 12 to 2 to get 6 and the price is multiply by 2 like on the pictur in the bottom.

5.Find 3 other values (amounts of Snack Mix) that could be solved using the same ratio table. Find the \$\$ of your new container sizes.

### Ashlee's 2nd Growing post

Question 1.

a) First question I multiplied. For the second question I divided.

b)I multiplied 3.60x12=43.20 that is the price, then the second one I divided 3.60/2=1.80 then after I was done with that I divided the container into portions equally for both.

c) I could have used a ratio table for the questions.

d)I took 2 2/5 and multiplied it by 5. Then took the 12 and divided it by 2 which gave me the size of the cup. Then I did the same thing but only with the prices like the picture before.

Question 2.

## Thursday, December 6, 2007

### Mya's Second Growing Post

1. What strategies were needed?
for my test, i used were
t-chart,multiplication and divi
sion, !
to find out the cost and ingredients..

2. How did you use these strategies?
I used it by making a T chart,
2 2/5 = \$3.60
12= \$18.00
6= \$9.00
2= \$3.00

1= \$1.50
1/2= .75 cents

3. Or How could you of used these strategies?
i used this stragety by making a tchart, but you could also do it without a tchart, if you did it would probably be difficult for me, but it would still work.

### Allison's 2nd growing post

Question 1

1.) What strategies were needed?
The strategies that were needed to solve this problem were the ratio table, division, and multiplication. I also used the clock method.

2.) How did you use the strategies?
By using a ratio table or the clock method I could easily figure out how to get the price and the other information given on the test.For an example (on a ratio table): I took 2 2/5 cups then multiplied it by 5 to get 12 cups . I then did the same thing for the price. 2 2/5 cups was \$3.60 so then you multiply that by 5 since you multiplied 12 by 5 then you get \$18.00.

3.) Or how could you have used these strategies?
You can use this strategy to find out the answers to other amounts for diffrent sized containers.

4.) How would you figure out the price of the 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack Mix?
You can use a ratio table. Since we know that 2 2/5 x 5 is 12 and the price of 12 cups is \$18.00. You now just divided 12 by 2 to get 6 then do the same thing with the price. Since we know that \$18.00 is the price of 12 cups, you just divide 18 by 2 to get how much it is for 6 cups which would be \$9.00

5.)Find other 3 values that could be solved sing the ratio table. Find the \$\$ of new container sizes.

### Chelsey's 2nd Growing Post

Question #1

1.) The strategies I used were division, multiplication and a T Chart -- to find out the the cost and the amount of ingredients per cup.

2.) I used these strategies by first making a T Chart and then dividing the 2 2/5 which was \$3.60 by 2 to get the answer and then kept multiplying and dividing until I got the answer for half a cup and 6 cups.

3.) You could have used the same strategies (multiplying and dividing) still the same way but without using a T Chart. It just would have been harder and not as organized but it would still work.

4.) As you can see in the picture I found out the price of a 6 cup container of Betty's Snack Mix by multiplying 2 2/5 by 5 to get 12 cups (price \$18.00) then I divided that by 2 and got 6 cups and the price was \$9.00

5.) The 3 other values I got as you can see on the chart were 1 cup, 3 cups and 12 cups. I got the answer for 1 cup by multiplying 2 2/5 by 5 and remember whatever I did to one side I did to the other then I divided 12 by 2 to get 6.

I divided 6 by 2 to get 3, then I divided 3 by 3 to get 1 cup with a cost of \$1.50.I got 3 cups by first multiplying 2 2/5 by 5 to get 12 then divided 12 by 2 to get 3 cups and got a price of \$4.50.

REMEMBER whatever I do to one side I do to the other. To get 12 cups I times 2 2/5 by 5 and did the same thing to the other side to get a price of \$18.00.

1. Some strategies that were needed were a ratio table, and division.
2. I used the ratio table by putting down 2 2/5 because thats how big the container was, on the other side I put \$3.60 because that's how much 2 2/5 container costs.
3. You could use these strategies because once you find out what one container costs, then you can find any amount you want.

3) Or How could you of used these strategies ?
- You could use these strategies to find different answers
4) How would you figure out the price of the 6 cup bad of Betty's Snack Mix ?

- Since 2 2/5 x5 is 12 for \$18.00. I just divided 12 by 2 to get 6 then I did the same thing in the other side (x2) to get how much it is so then 6 cups would be \$9.00

### CARL'S 2nd growing post

1.What strategies were needed?
one strategy is the ratio table.

2.How did you use these strategies?
a.)for the 12 cups, i just multiply 2 2/5 to make it a whole number and when i multiply it by 5 i got 12, so the price should be also multiplied by 5 and the answer is 18.00.

* what did you do to the cups and prices, do it also to the parts.*

3.How could you of used these strategies.
you can use this strategy to find more amount of cups and prices.
4.How would you figure out the price of a 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack mix? the answer is in the second picture.
5.Find 3 other values (amounts of Snack Mix) that could be solved using the same ratio table. Find the \$\$ of your new container sizes.

1.)How much pizza does each student get in the different groups?
on the first group(sally,bob, gidget,biff and they have 3 pizzas)they got 3 slices each,the second group(stan,holly,berry,ben,itcheabibble and they have 4 pizzas) they got 4 slices of pizza each,on the third group (moose,eric,suzy,james,betty,veronica and they have 5 pizzas)they got 5 slices of pizza each,and the fourth group (paul,alex,chris,jughead,archie,reggie,midge,mr.witherbee and they have 7 pizzas)
and they got 7 slices of pizza each.
2.)Which group gets the largest portion of pizza?
the 4th group

i used the common denominator

### Alexandra's Second Growing Post

Question 1
What strategies were needed?
For me, the strategies that were needed in this test were the ratio table, multiplication, and division.

How did you use these strategies?

By using the ratio table, you can easily figure out how to get the price, and the total amount of the ingredients needed in a given amount of container. The multiplication and division can help too. You can get the unit price and ingredient for a unit by using division. And then if you have the things for a unit, you can get any other numbers that you want by multilying everything by the number you want to get.

Does this confuse you? Here is an example.

Or How could of you used these strategies?

I could have used these strategies to find the amount of the the ingredients that were needed in a 12 cup container. Just like this

How could you figure out the price of a 6 cup bag of Betty's Snack Mix? Use a ratio table.

Find 3 other values (amounts) of snack mix that could be solved using the ratio table. Find the new \$\$ of your new container sizes.

We know that 12 cups of BSM costs \$18.oo, the 6 cups costs \$9.00 and 1 cup costs \$1.50. I used these things to figure out how much it costs when i want to buy 4 cups, 3 cups and 2 cups of BSM. Here's what I did.

Question 2

You are going to create a voice thread explaining the strategies you used on your test. You need to choose 4 out of 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 =

I chose question number 1, 3, 5 and 6.
