Sara has a measuring cup that holds ¼ cup.  How many ¼ cups would she need to make 1 ¼ cup altogether? Show your answer in equal groups.

Addition (part- part whole), ¼, ¼, 1/4, ¼, ¼   each group is a different color.  For addition you can count up, adding ¼ cup each time till you total 1 ¼ cup. ¼ + ¼ + ¼ + ¼ + ¼ =?

Multiplication (equal group) there are 5 groups of ¼ therefore it would be written 5 x ¼ =?

Terry is making chicken soup for a party.  She uses 6 cartons of chicken broth weighing a total of 13 ¼ pounds.  How much does one carton weigh?

Step 1. Compare – difference unknown (how many less) Subtraction, 1000 – 4 =?
Step 2.  Equal group – (measurement Multiplication), answer from step one x 4.3cm =?
