A recipe for DIY play dough
A recipe for DIY play dough calls for 2 ¾ cups of flour.
If the ¼-cup is the only measuring cup that you have available, how could you use this to measure 2 ¾ cups of flour?
Explain/show why using this measuring cup eleven times will work. Use a math drawing to help with your explanation.
(Your audience for your explanation is someone who has a strong conceptual understanding of fractions, but who does not yet know the procedure for rewriting a mixed number as a fraction. [so simply showing them how to do this procedure will not be helpful!])
