CANDY CALCULATIONS


Working with fractions is no treat...until now!  When your child is begging for candy, try descrbing a difficult math concept while they dig in.  Using fun packs, mulit-colored candies, have your child find fractions inside the bag.  What fraction of the bag was yellow candy?  What fraction of the bag was red?  Can those numbers be simplified?  Can they compute percentages?  The, after the numbers are crunched, taste the reward of a job well-done!
