Food For Fractions

Who doesn't like to eat? Use food to explore the concept of fractions and how to multiply and divide fractions. In small groups they plan a sugar potluck that involves converting a recipe to produce enough dessert treats to feed the entire class. Math learners calculate the amount of ingredients for the entire project and for each individual recipe, make their recipe, and share it with the class.
