I want to teach the students a real life way to use fractions with cooking recipes. I also want them to convert the recipe so they can use the skill of adding fractions. Has anyone done something similar to this? I'm looking for ideas as to how to get it started, make a rubric, and wondering whether to make it an in class or home project. Thanks!
