A fourth grade class won a pizza party for collecting the most paper for recycling in their school contest. Medium pizzas were cut into 8 slices, and large pizzas were cut into 12 slices.

Question 1.

Mariah ate 2 slices of a large pizza. What fraction of the pizza did she eat? Draw a sketch to show your thinking.

Answer: \(\frac{2}{12}\) or \(\frac{1}{6}\)

Given Mariah ate 2 slices of large pieces.

Total number of pieces in the large pizza = 12

therefore, the fraction of pizza she ate = \(\frac{1}{6}\) or \(\frac{2}{12}\)

Question 2.

Carlos said that Mariah ate of \(\frac{1}{6}\) a pizza. Tell why you agree or disagree.

Answer: Yes. I agree with Carlos

Given Mariah ate 2 slices of large pieces.

Total number of pieces in the large pizza = 12

therefore, the fraction of pizza she ate = \(\frac{1}{6}\) or \(\frac{2}{12}\)

Question 3.

Mariah’s table seats 4 students. Each student ate 2 slices of a large pizza. Write an equation that shows what fraction of a pizza was eaten at Mariah’s table.

Answer: \(\frac{8}{12}\)

Mariah’s table seats 4 students.

Each student ate 2 slices of a large pizza.

Therefore, the fraction of a pizza was eaten at Mariah’s table = \(\frac{2}{12}\) + \(\frac{2}{12}\) + \(\frac{2}{12}\) + \(\frac{2}{12}\)

= \(\frac{8}{12}\)

Question 4.

Tony ate 3 slices of a medium pizza. His friend, Connor, ate 4 slices of the same pizza.

a. Write two different fractions to describe how much pizza Connor ate.

Answer: \(\frac{2}{4}\), \(\frac{4}{8}\)

Total number of pieces in medium pizza = 8

Connor ate 4 slices.

Therefore, the two different fractions to describe the amount of pizza ate by Connor is \(\frac{2}{4}\), \(\frac{4}{8}\).

b. What fraction of the pizza did the boys eat together? _________

Answer: \(\frac{7}{4}\)

Total number of pieces in medium pizza = 8

number of pieces in medium pizza did the boys eat together = 7

Therefore, the fractions to describe the number of pieces in medium pizza did the boys eat together \(\frac{7}{4}\).

Question 5.

Lionel’s table group drank 1\(\frac{1}{2}\) liters of juice with their pizza. How many milliliters did they drink? Show your work.

Answer: 1500 ml

1 liter = 1000 ml

Lionel’s table group drank 1\(\frac{1}{2}\) liters of juice

= \(\frac{3}{2}\) = 1.5 liters

1.5 liters = 1.5 x 1000 ml

= 1500 ml

Question 1.

If the area of the largest square on the geoboard is 1, what is the area of each region?

Answer:

16 squares can be formed by joining the dots given above.

A. A has 4 parts. So 4 divided by total 16 squares = \(\frac{4}{16}\) = \(\frac{1}{4}\)

B. B has 2 parts. So 2 divided by total 16 squares = \(\frac{2}{16}\) = \(\frac{1}{8}\)

C. C has 1 part. So 1 divided by total 16 squares = \(\frac{1}{16}\)

D. D has half part. So divide that part by 16 = \(\frac{1}{32}\)

E. E has 8 parts. So 8 divided by total 16 squares = \(\frac{8}{16}\) = \(\frac{1}{2}\)

Question 2.

Write four statements and matching fraction equations that compare two regions.

Answer:

i) B is twice as big as C = 2 x \(\frac{1}{16}\) = \(\frac{1}{8}\)

ii) B is one-fourth of E = 4 x \(\frac{1}{8}\) = \(\frac{1}{2}\)

iii) 4 Cs fi into A = \(\frac{1}{16}\) + \(\frac{1}{16}\) + \(\frac{1}{16}\) + \(\frac{1}{16}\) = \(\frac{1}{4}\)

iv) D is half of C = \(\frac{1}{32}\) + \(\frac{1}{32}\) = \(\frac{1}{16}\)

Question 3.

Fill in the blank with the correct relational symbol: <, >, or =.

Answer:

\(\frac{1}{2}\) > \(\frac{1}{6}\)

**Introducing Dozens of Eggs**

**Work Place Instructions 3A Dozens of Eggs**

Each pair of players needs:

- 2 Dozens of Eggs Record Sheets
- 1 deck of Dozens of Eggs Fraction Cards
- 1 Egg Carton Diagram
- 6 pieces of string or yarn
- 12 colored tiles
- colored pencils or crayons

1. Players shuffle the fraction cards and lay them face-down in a stack. Each player draws one card. The player with the larger fraction goes first. The cards just drawn go at the bottom of the stack.

Players may build fractions on the Egg Carton Diagram if needed to determine which fraction is larger.

2. Player 1 draws a card from the top of the deck, reads the fraction out loud, and uses string and colored tiles to build a model of the fraction on the Egg Carton Diagram. Player 2 checks Player 1’s work.

Jasmine Wow! I got a really big fraction on my first turn. So I’m going to divide the egg carton into 3 equal parts, and fill 2 of them, like this.

Sara I agree that \(\frac{2}{3}\) of the egg carton is 8 eggs, because I know that there are 4 eggs in one-third of a carton.

3. Player 1 draws circles to represent that number of eggs in one of the diagrams on her record sheet and records that number of twelfths as a fraction on the sheet.

Jasmine I have to change \(\frac{2}{3}\) into twelfths, but that’s easy, because each egg is one-twelfth of the carton, so I got \(\frac{8}{12}\) on my first turn. I only need 4 more twelfths to fill this carton.

4. Player 1 empties the egg carton diagram and puts the card in a discard stack. Then Player 2 takes a turn.

5. Players continue to take turns until one person has filled in all four cartons on the record sheet. Players should use a different color to record each new turn.

When all the cards in the deck have been used, shuffle the deck and use it again.

6. On each turn, players must put all of the eggs in one carton. However, players may begin to fill another carton before the first is completely filled.

7. If the fraction drawn does not fit into one of the cartons, the player misses that turn.

8. When a carton is filled, the player writes an equation by inserting plus signs between the fractions for that carton and showing them equal to 1 whole.

9. The winner is the first player to fill all four cartons on his record sheet. If Player 1 is the first to fill all four cartons, Player 2 may take one last turn.

**Game Variations**

A. Players work together to fill all four cartons on a single record sheet rather than playing against each other.

B. Players begin with all four cartons filled, by drawing 12 circles in each of the cartons and writing at

the start of each equation line. Then each player subtracts the fractions that are written on the cards they get, crossing out that many eggs and subtracting that many twelfths. Players must subtract the entire fraction from one carton rather than splitting the fraction between two or more cartons. The winner is the first player to get rid of all the eggs from all four cartons.

**Egg Carton Fractions**

Question 1.

Solve the following multiplication and division problems. They might help you think about the egg cartons in problem 2.

**Work Place Instructions 3B Racing Fractions**

Each pair of players needs:

- 1 Racing Fractions Record Sheet to share
- 1 Racing Fractions Game Board
- 7 red game markers
- 7 blue game markers
- 1 deck of Racing Fraction Cards

1. Players decide who will play with the red game markers, and who will play with the blue markers. Then both players place one of their game markers at the beginning of each number line on the game board.

2. Players shuffle the fraction cards and lay them face-down in a stack. Each player draws one card. The player with the larger fraction goes first. Players put the cards just drawn at the bottom of the stack.

3. Player 1 draws a new card and moves one or more game markers the distance shown on the card.

Player 1 I got \(\frac{3}{6}\). That’s the same as \(\frac{1}{2}\), so I could go \(\frac{1}{2}\), \(\frac{2}{4}\), \(\frac{3}{6}\), \(\frac{4}{8}\), or \(\frac{5}{10}\). Hmm…or I could do \(\frac{1}{3}\) and \(\frac{1}{6}\). I remember those make \(\frac{1}{2}\) from when we looked at egg carton fractions. I think I’ll do that.

4. Player 1 records the fraction in his Fraction column on the record sheet and writes the fraction or equation that describes how the game markers were moved in his Equation column.

(If the player selected \(\frac{1}{2}\) and moved \(\frac{1}{2}\), he would write \(\frac{1}{2}\). If the player selected \(\frac{1}{2}\) and moved one marker to \(\frac{1}{3}\) and another marker to \(\frac{1}{6}\), he would write \(\frac{1}{3}\) + \(\frac{1}{6}\) = \(\frac{1}{2}\).)

5. Player 2 checks first player’s work on the record sheet. Player 3 tries again if an error was made.

6. Then Player 2 draws a fractions card and takes a turn. Player 3 checks the second player’s work.

7. Players continue to take turns, record moves, and check each other’s work until one player’s game markers are all on 1. If Player 1 is the first to land on 1, Player 2 may take one last turn.

If a player cannot find a possible move for a card he has drawn, the player loses the turn.

Players may also move game markers backward. For example, if a player selects \(\frac{1}{3}\), she can move one marker up \(\frac{1}{2}\) and another back \(\frac{1}{6}\). The sum or the difference of the moves still needs to equal the value on the fraction card.

**Game Variations**

A. Play cooperatively. Players can work together and help each other finish the track in a certain time period.

B. Double the length of each track by taping 2 copies of the Racing Fractions Game Board Teacher Master together, writing a 3 in front of every fraction on the second sheet, and changing the 3 at the end of each track on the second sheet to a 2.
