Pizza Math

When our little wooden pizza was purchased, I had no idea how instrumental it would be for teaching. Today we used it in our practice of fractions. We saw how 2/6 was equal to 1/3, 3/6 was equal to 1/2 and how 4/6 equals 2/3. We also reinforced our times tables by putting different amounts of toppings on each piece and then multiplying them. This was a great way to really experience math in a pratical way. Tomorrow we'll try it with real pizza!
