### Double Dose Recommendations:

- Kim Sutton math routines.
- Pre-teach the following: Area, 5 days (#34-38)

### Tip of the Week:

The Performance Assessment has students working with fractions in recipes. Here’s an online activity that complements the performance task:

## Feeding Frenzy

In this activity, students will multiply and divide a recipe to feed groups of various sizes. Students will use unit rates or proportions and think critically about real world applications of a baking problem.

### Technology Integration Resources:

Videos:

- LearnZillion: Solve word problems involving division of fractions by fractions using picture models
- LearnZillion: Divide mixed numbers and fractions
- LearnZillion: Understand why dividing by a number gives the same result as multiplying by its reciprocal
- LearnZillion: Divide whole numbers by unit fractions: using visual models

### Mathematical Practices:

Model with Mathematics The CCSS says this about Model with Mathematics, “In middle grades, a student might apply proportional reasoning to plan a school event or analyze a problem in the community.”

With the holidays, could you ask the students to Model with Math by asking questions about how much food your household needs to buy to host a holiday party?

**How do students demonstrate their conceptual understanding of mathematics in your classroom? What performance tasks do you have students work on?**
