## Warm Up: Candy Factory

10 minutes

To warm up for this quiz, I wanted them to settle in and get their minds wrapped around equivalency . I had them log onto the ap Candy Factory. This ap is great for them to work on by creating fractions of candy bars for order in a factory. Students have to divide and figure out what equivalent amount they need to fill the order. Students worked for about 10 minutes. I stopped them to talk a minute about what the quiz would be about. We talked about how we had learned to draw models to prove our understanding. I told them that this quiz would give them the opportunity to show their understanding of equivalency through drawing.
