Student Teacher


You and a friend enter a fishing contest. You have been asked to collect worms before you can move to the next round in the fishing contest. You have heard that the longest worms are good to use for bait. According to the contest rules for the first stage, the person with the longest worm, in each pairing, will get to start fishing an hour earlier in the next round of the contest. You and your friend go home and think about the best place to find your worms. You found the best spot. After collecting your worms, you meet up with your friend to determine the length of each worm to the nearest 1/4 inch. Which one of you has the longest worm? Use a line plot to record your data. Remember: The person with the longest worm will get to continue to the next round.

The skill of decomposing fractions is used heavily in the PBL.. I am glad to see that because some teachers are afraid and tend to stay away from the skill of decomposing. It makes for strong math students when it comes to fractions
