Fraction Bake Sale

In class we have been learning how to simplify fractions, make improper fractions mixed numbers and vise versa. I was trying to think of a fun way to practice these skills that involved real life application, and the idea of a bake sale came to me! I knew the students loved to bake, so I found some simple recipes and mixed them up a little bit. I made them include improper fractions and fractions that needed to be simplified, in order for the students to prepare the recipe with ease. In order for us to have our "bake sale" the students had to work together to fix the recipes. They loved the real life application, working together, and getting to wear aprons and chef hats while working to to complete some real life math.
