For this project you will be working with recipes. You will be doubling, tripling, and
quadrupling three different recipes. The
recipes you use need to be found on the internet. You need an appetizer recipe, a main dish recipe,
and a dessert recipe. Once you have
found three different recipes you need to do the following in neat function
tables on your display board.
Create three different function
tables for each recipe. Each recipe
must have a table that doubles, triples, and quadruples the
ingredients. At the bottom of each
table tell me how many servings you will have once the recipe is doubled,
tripled, or quadrupled. Now you must figure out how much you will increase each recipe in order to have enough servings for your whole class, the whole 5 ^{th}
grade, and the whole school.Answer the following questions…**What does serving mean when you see it on a recipe?**
**Why is it important to know how many servings are in a recipe?**
**Is it helpful to use a function table when figuring out how much you will need of each ingredient when making the recipe larger.**
For extra credit/ extensions do both or choose one - *Ask your teacher if you could demonstrate how to follow a recipe for your class. You could make no-bake cookies, sandwich, etc… If you would like to do this at home with your parents you will need someone to take pictures of you making the item and then display your steps on your display board.*
*You could create a short quiz for your audience to see of they understand how to use your recipe function table example (if I am doubling my recipe I will use which type of problem to find out how may cups of flour I will need 3X=6 3+X=6 3-X=6 3/X=6 )*
