Growing Post Hall Of Fame

As we started this journey down the Growing Post Lane I wondered how many of you would participate. The first round of Growing posts saw just over 50% of you do an online version of the post with 15% of you choosing to do a paper version of the assignment (where where the other 35%?????)

This time in the Fraction Growing Post Part 1 over 70% of you are doing the activities on line and 10% are doing the work on paper. Congratulations. What an improvement. Keep up the good work.

Some students go the extra mile to do excellent work. I have chosen to honour them at the

Growing Post Hall of Fame

The Hall of Fame can be found at our new Class Wiki.


There is also a Scribe Post Hall of Fame. It was started by Mr. Kuropatwa.

Fraction Growing Post Part 2

In this growing post you will need to demonstrate your understanding of multiplying and dividing fractions.


1. This shape is a square that has side lengths of 5 cm. This shape represents 5/6 of a total. Use this square to show the fraction 9/5. You can use diagrams, words, symbols to show your understanding.(copy the picture into your post and change it as you see fit!!)

Give a brief description of the process you took to create the new diagram.

2. What happens when you multiply fractions? Use both a numerical and pictorial example to show our understanding of this concept.

3. Find a website or blog that shows you how to multiply fractions. Create a link to this fraction site (highlight a word you want to be a link, click the link button, paste your url into the pop up that appears). Be sure to leave a brief 3 sentence description to the site.

4. What happens when you divide fractions? Use both a numerical and pictorial example to show our understanding of this concept.

5. Find a website or blog that shows you how to divide fractions. Create a link to this fraction site (highlight a word you want to be a link, click the link button, paste your url into the pop up that appears). Be sure to leave a brief 3 sentence description to the site.

6. Choose 4 peoples post which deserve to be in a Growing Post Hall of Fame. You must choose 1 from each class. Give a brief description of why you chose that person's blog to highlight. Create a link to that person's post.

7. Create a word problem that involves fractions. The word problem should have a picture in it ( a garden with 4 equal parts etc.). Answer someone elses word problem with a link back to the origional question.
