M&M's Equivalency

Week of September 1-5, 2014

This week we have been reviewing topics previously learned in 7th grade. We discussed the procedures to find equivalent forms of fractions, decimals and percents. The students were then given an activity where they had to find the ratios of a certain color of M&M's to the total found in their bag. They were instructed to take the ratios and find equivalent fractions, decimals and percents for each color. It was a good review activity and the kids received an added treat at the end. The activity was glued to their interactive notebooks alongside the notes we took.
