Marcio's fractions growing thingy

1) Use a picture and text to show that you understand what expressing fractions in lowest terms means.


2) How are improper and mixed numbers the same?




3) Find a website or blog that explains how to create equivalent fractions or write fractions in lowest terms. Create a link to it and a description of what the site has to offer

http://mathfun.com/FractionLessonPlan.html

It's MathFun.Com. What else can I say? =D


4) Write a word problem that involves adding these two fractions with denominators of fourths and thirds, and your answer is an improper fraction.

BobBert likes melons. He bought 2 melons out of a package of 4. Jogurt also likes melons. Who wouldn't? Anyways, he buys 2 out of a package of 3. Their friend, Steak, is a neat freak and wants everything in wholes. BB and J (BobBert and Jogurt) want to give melons as a gift. They decide to add them:

2/3 + 2/4 (You find a common denomenator between both of them, which is 12)

2 x 4 = 8 + 2 x 3 = 6 8 + 6 = 14
3 x 4 = 12 + 4 x 3 = 12 12

So adding both packs of melons, they concluded that a case between them would be 12, and still have melons left over for their own, many, uses.

5) Go to three people's growing posts and answer their fraction problems by leaving comments. One of the three people cannot be from your homeroom.

okay... Johanna, Bui, and...
uhhh...
Hellen. Yeah, they did nothin' wrong, so yeah, whatever...

6) Find a website or blog that explains how to add or subtract fractions. Create a link to it and a brief descripstion of what the site has to offer.

http://library.thinkquest.org/J002197/Fractles.htm

It's a site talking about subtracting Fractions.
I like the Carnival tent also. Nice touch...
And by the way, it's THINKTANK! =D

  • 2/4 = 6/12
    2/3 = 8/12
    6+8=14
    14/12 = 1 2/12 = 1 1/6

    good job on your post
