Math at Home

Today I explored a Web site that had some tasty and easy-to-make recipes. I used some of the fraction measurements to add and subtract fractions. I found that to make Super Strawberry Bars, I need a total of                        of sugar and strawberries mixed together.

Ask your teacher or parents to show you other fun and interesting Web pages.
