Fractions and Decimals

In this fractions and decimals instructional activity, students solve 11 various types of word problems that include recording data in fractions and/or decimal form. First, they complete the table to determine how many people needed to make trail mix for and the number of cups for each serving. Then, students complete another table to show the correct amount of each ingredient needed to make 36 servings. Finally, they complete a table to find the cost of peanuts and sunflower seeds per serving.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
