Thanks Ellie! It's so great to see younger students using a proportion statement like this and using 'real life' (yummy) its to introduce students to the concept! Our year 11 and 12 Math A students are introduced to this format, but our year 8-10 use the cross-multiplication method (which in fact is the same minus the worded example and fish :))

ReplyDeleteThis is an awesome activity for my 8th graders!

ReplyDeleteI'm a student teacher, and I'm definitely going to use this for my lesson in my math methods course. I also hope to use this when I'm out student teaching. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts and lessons -- I wish I was in your class when I was in 5th grade. :-)
