Math by the Month
math by the month: A fraction feast

Lara Kikosicki and Debbie Prekeges Edited by Christine D. Poulsen and Kimberly M. Lilienthal 

October 2012, Volume 19, Issue 3, Page 144

Abstract:
Family time in the kitchen can lead to opportunities to explore fractions in real-life circumstances and tap into children’s engagement in the harvest season. You might supplement the October problems by setting up a time for your students to talk with a professional chef or event planner about how they use fractions in their jobs.
