Father’s Day blueberry surprise


Sunday is Father's Day and there is still time to have a tiny fraction review in the guise of celebrating Father's Day.

This is a short activity that asks students to change the amounts in a blueberry muffin recipe to multiples of and fractions of a ¼ cup measuring cup (multiplication and division with unit fractions).

    This is so great! It is just what I needed for a Unit on dividing with fractions that I have been working on. I also think this can apply to number sense as well if you extend this activity to using other forms of measurement (i.e. a 1/2 or 1/3 measuring cup as well as a 1/4 measuring cup). This creates a problem solving situation where the students use number sense and their understanding of fractions to determine which measuring cup should be used.
