Beauregard – Math: Fraction Recipe #1 Cookie Dough Bites

Teacher: Beauregard (kbeauregard@hps.holyoke.ma.us)

Assignment:

Suppose you wanted to make the recipe below for a larger group of people.  You might need to double, triple, or quadruple the ingredients to make enough for your guests!  Using the given amounts in the recipe below, write equations and solve how much of each ingredient you would need as the recipe is adjusted to feed more and more people. Of course you can make this recipe when you are done and send me pictures to post on our ClassDojo Classroom Page:) !!! Have fun and enjoy 🙂

 

No-bake cookie dough bites

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cups mini chocolate chips

 

Instructions for making it if you wish 🙂 In a large bowl add butter, brown sugar, granulated and beat until light and fluffy.  Add vanilla extract, salt and mix until well combined, then add flour. Add mini chocolate chips or any other candy and mix. Roll into 1 inch balls and refrigerate for 15-20 minutes

 

Ingredients doubled: Show your equations and solve for each ingredient.  Don’t forget to change fractions greater than one whole to mixed numbers as well as simplify if needed. Always label 🙂 I have doubled the first two ingredients for you.

Examples:

1 + 1 = 2 cups flour or 1 x 2 = 2 cups of flour

½  + ½ = 2/2 = 1 cup butter or ½ x 2 = ½  x 2/1 = 2/2 = 1 cup butter

 

Continue doubling the rest of the ingredients in the recipe in the space below:

 

Ingredients tripled: Show your equations and solve for each ingredient.  Don’t forget to change fractions greater than a whole to mixed numbers as well as simplify if needed. Always label 🙂  I have tripled the first two ingredients for you.

Examples:

1 + 1 + 1= 3 cups flour (or) 1 X 3= 3 cups of flour

½ +½ + ½ = 3/2 = 1 ½  cups butter or ½ x 3 = 3/2 = 1 ½ cups butter

 

Continue tripling the rest of the ingredients in the recipe in the space below:

 

Ingredients quadrupled: Show your equations and solve for each ingredient.  Don’t forget to change fractions greater than a whole to mixed numbers as well as simplify if needed. Always label 🙂  I have quadrupled the first two ingredients for you.

Examples:

1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 4 cups of flour (or) 1 x 4 = 4 cups of flour

½ + ½ + ½ + ½ = 4/2 = 2 cups butter (or) ½ x 4 = 4/2 = 2 cups butter

 

Continue quadrupling the rest of the ingredients in the recipe in the space below:
