Bake-up some cookie fractions with your class in order to determine improper fractions and mixed numbers. Young bakers calculate cookie orders given on an order form. From their calculations, they write the improper fraction, mixed number, and total amount of whole cookies ordered. Class members then confirm the orders on a confirmation form and code it accordingly. The task may be introduced to the class with the story The Hershey's Milk Chocolate Fractions Book by Jerry Pallotta. A fun and useful way to visualize mixed numbers!
