In previous lessons, students became familiar with and solved problems involving equal groups, time, weight, and liquid volume. In this lesson, students put together the ideas they have learned to consider a variety of mathematical situations that might arise during a day at the fair. Students solve problems as they imagine the course of a day at the fair and create a poster to highlight their mathematical reasoning.
