Not enough mashed potatoes
Not enough mashed potatoes
Using his famous mashed potato recipe, Brian has asked students

 to change decimals to fractions,
 to calculate ingredient measures for varioussized Thanksgiving servings,
 to explain their thinking in calculating these figures
 and to judge how many servings could be created from 7½ pounds of potatoes.
We've been given an extension to this lesson (The activity is called: It's all gravy)

Teacher feedback: Just finished this activity and my 7th graders loved it. They were so creative finding different ways to make 32 servings. Each student was trying to outdo the other with more complex use of serving amounts and proportions. Lots of fun!  Mrs. Keli Leunes, Math Teacher, PAAAS Plainfield, NJ
