B matches the red box
c: would be the green 2/5 of the set
2/5 of the set is grey goes with C (yellow box)
3/4 of the set is grey = B I see 3 sets of 3 are grey and 1 set of 3 white
Yellow ->A , Dark Green -> B Red -> B Light Green -> C
B is 3/4 of set is grey and ratio of grey to white is 3:1; Ratio of A is 2:1
a is yellow
3/4 matches b
B, C, A, B
B matches the first box
B: dark green
Sorry, green, not yellow. Apparently I’m color blind.
B is ¾ grey
A matches the yellow box
b is orange
2/5 is c
Dark green goes with B
c is green
Yellow is A
A is 2:1 grey to white
B - 3/4 is grey
They are in correct positions.
I agree, all correct. lol
I think that would be 3 gray to one white, so matching with set B.
12 people get 9 pizzas
half the people, half the pizzas
9/12, 4.5/6, 3/4, 1.5/2
The numerators are pizza amounts, denominators are tables
I approached from perspective of intermediate students since those are students with whom I’m mostly working. I drew tables w/ people. Then started placing pizzas. Every two people got 1 pizza to start . Then, there were 6 pizza remaining so every 4 people would get another pizza.
Fair sharing, kestes!!!
This ended up being 3/4 of pizza per person. Yep! Fair sharing! :)
I loved this fair sharing thinking sounds more realistic Kestes
more constant of proportionality (y = kx)
I love all the different ways to solve
All those different ways to solve mean that kids have many ways to enter the work and get to the mathematics!
Thanks Cindy great problem situations!
Thank you so much!! Liked the opportunity to hear other's thinking
Thank you, Cindy! Brilliant as always!
very good critical thinking activities!
Great tasks!! look forward to using these!
Thanks Cindy! I loved seeing all the different ways people think!
Thank you Cindy! I love getting a chance to do some math beyond what I usually do in elementary.
Always love to think about mathematics! Cindy rocks!

I like the different ways of thinking about the ratios. Always like the Desmos info.
