Fractions, fractions, everywhere! You can’t seem to get through life without them!
Interview your parents to find out how they use fractions in their lives. When do they add or subtract, multiply or divide fractions. Do they ever use mixed numbers?
Write a brief scenario in your comment to show those fractions in action!
Here’s an example:
I wanted to go to IKEA over the Christmas vacation to pick up some things for the house. I live downtown and it is quite a long way to the airport so I checked how much gas I had before setting out. I had about one quarter of a tank full. When I got to IKEA I realized that I only had one sixth of a tank left. Will I have enough gas to get home or do I need to find a gas station in a hurry?
