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

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:

### 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?**

### Double Dose Recommendations:

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

### Tip of the Week:

Think about incorporating these ideas/resources:

- The Topic Opener/STEM Project on page 201 not only brings in math in the context of the real world, but it also requires informational text reading and researching.
- New York City Department of Education created a performance task, Share My Candy, for dividing fractions by fractions, which includes a rubric.

### Technology Integration Resources:

Videos:

Online & interactive practice, that progressively gets more difficult from IXL:

- Divide fractions: Divide by fractions – with models
- Divide fractions: Reciprocals
- Divide fractions: Divide fractions
- Divide fractions: Estimate quotients when dividing mixed numbers
- Divide fractions: Divide fractions & mixed numbers
- Divide fractions: Divide fractions & mixed numbers: word problems

### Mathematical Practices:

MP6- Attend to Precision

- Communicate precisely to others
- Use clear definitions in discussion with others and in their own reasoning
- State the meaning of symbols they choose (equal sign)
- Specific with units of measure, labeling, and quantities
- Calculate accurately and efficiently

Question/Practice Stems

- Why do you believe that to be true?
- How did you reach your conclusion?
- How does your answer connect to the question?
- What math vocabulary did you use today?
- How did you use it?
- What does that symbol mean?
- What would happen if your removed the symbol?
- How would the problem change?
- Does my work need labeling? If so, what? Why?

**Are students applying the math practices daily? How do you know? What do the math practices sound like and look like in your classroom? **
