Now, if you look at the sample orders, you will see some of the orders are more complex. I differentiated the orders based on my students' readiness levels. Students first had to interpret what the order meant before they could actually start making their pizzas. If 2/3 of the pizza has mushrooms and 1/3 has mushrooms and tomatoes, does that mean that only one of the two thirds section also has tomatoes? The questioning was necessary before clarity prevailed for our pizza makers.

After the pizzas were made, students checked each others orders. We realized some "customers" would not be happy unless we fixed their orders. A real world problem for sure :)! Students then completed the Task Questions. The questions address the following I can... statements.

- I can partition wholes into various amounts to solve a real world problem.
- I can explain what the numerator and denominator of a fraction represent.
- I can use models to show and explain equivalent fractions.
- I can use models to compare fractions.
