Kids love to cook! What is a better place to learn mixed numbers than with a recipe? It is up to learners to decide how they want to divide this recipe in half. They may choose to model the mixed number and then divide the model by two. Maybe it is easier for them to graph on a number line and then mark the half-way point. Or a straight computation of multiplying by one half could be their choice. Any way your number crunchers dice it up, they need to use critical thinking in order to complete this exercise.
