Description

Overview:
Students will be introduced to addition, multiplication, and division of the benchmark fractions 1/2, 1/3, and 1/4 with a fun, hands-on experience. Students will layer the dry ingredients for a brownie recipe into a canning jar while having a rich discussion that aides visualizing operations with fractions. This shared experience can be referred to during future instruction.

The use of making brownie is as real world as It gets with simple math like this. Not only is it real world but it's engaging because it's something so many kids love.

Assessment is interesting and a changeup but lacks concrete statistics to save as data to later prove mastery.

Quality of Explanation of the Subject Matter: Limited (1)

A lot of time is spent focusing on the activity being done which is great but means less time is spent on the subject matter.
