Fraction Fun with Hungry Howie’s

The Valdosta Daily Times

- — Third grade students at Southeast Elementary School learned about fractions with pizza. The gracious owner of Hungry Howie’s sent a representative to the school to teach fractions with their favorite snack. They learned that each pizza is divided into ten sections, so each person gets 1/10. With a medium pizza, a person will get 1/8 of a pizza after it is cut and shared with friends. The students learned that pizza is not only delicious; it can also be used as a Math standard in school.
