I happened upon some Little Debbie snacks at the grocery store a few days ago and got some ideas for some new tasks. This task is meant to show fractions as division by dividing the number of Ho Ho’s by the number of plates (or people). The common core standard this best fits is 5.NF.B.3.
What do you notice? What do you wonder?
Focus Question: How many Ho Ho snacks will each person (or plate) get?
