Here are two examples of how you could solve the turf problem.
Ticat Football Stadium Construction – Card 1
Field engineers are putting down turf at the new football stadium.
Day 1 the engineers put down 1/30 of the field
Day 2 the engineers put down 2/30
Day 3 1/5 of the field is put down
Day 4 the engineers put down 3/10 of the field
Have the engineers covered at least half the field? How do you know? Explain your thinking?
Ticat Football Stadium Construction – Card 2
Day 5 they put down 2/15
Day 6 they put down 1/6
How much of the field is left to cover? Explain your thinking.
What are some possible combinations for completing the work for day 7 and 8. Explain Your Thinking.
If they must complete the same amount of work on day 7 and 8, what fractional amount of turf will they put down each day? Explain Your Thinking.
