Math Project Grade 5 Unit 1

 

Below are the ingredients to make apple dumplings for 100 servings (people).

 

Apple Dumplings (100 servings)

100 baking apples

72 tablespoons of sugar (4 ½ cups)

14 cups all-purpose flour

6 teaspoons baking power

24 eggs

80 tablespoons of butter ( 10 sticks of butter)

50 tablespoons chopped walnuts (3 1/8 cups)

 

Calculate the amounts that you will need to make the apple dumplings for 25 people and rewrite the list of ingredients with the smaller amounts. Display all the calculations you preformed to get the smaller amount for each ingredient  and Rewrite the ingredients for 25 people. All work should be displayed on a poster

11 x 14.

 

Below is a breakdown of grading guidelines

 

Poster is neat and colorful 10 points
All 7 ingredients have accurate calculations with correct units of measure 70 points
11 x 14 poster  used 10 points
Capitalization and punctuation are correct, no spelling or grammatical errors. 10 points

Note: 5 points will be taken off the grade each day the project is late.

 

 

 

 

 

These are future topics

Division with Decimals          

For adding and subtracting Decimals:

  1. Align the numbers so that the decimals are arranged in a vertical line (one on top of the other)
  2. Perform operation add or subtract

 

For multiplying decimals:

  1. Multiply the  numbers without the decimals
  2. Count the number of digits after the decimal in both factors.
  3. Place the decimal in the product by counting back (right to left) the number of digits counted in step 2.

 

For division of a decimal by a whole number:

  1. Place the decimal point in the quotient directly above the decimal point in the dividend
  2. Divide the numbers

 

Divide decimals when the divisor has a decimal:

  1. Rewrite the divisor as a whole number
  2. Whatever we do to the divisor we do to the dividend
  3. Place the decimal in the quotient
  4. Divide

 

Divide decimals with a remainder

  1. Rewrite the divisor as a whole number
  2. Whatever we do to the divisor we do to the dividend
  3. Place the decimal in the quotient
  4. Divide
  5. If there is a remainder, add a zero to the dividend
  6. Continue dividing
  7. Continue adding a zero and dividing until there is not remainder or  pattern develops
