The wedges in a circle graph 2008-05-18
From Libby:
I don't understand how to do this word problem: The cafeteria workers distributed a survey to the student body asking students to pick 1 from a list of 5 choices for their favorite lunch. The circle graph below gives the results of the survey for the students who responded. What is the measure, in degrees, of the central angle for each choice?

And there is a pie chart that has food choices with these percentages: 25%, 20%, 15%, 10%, and 30%

2/3 vs 3/4 2002-01-02
From Julia:
So, here's my question. Some of the problems they've had to do starts off with two fractions, and they have to tell whether the two fractions are:
  1. The first one is greater than the second one
  2. The first one is less than the second one, or
  3. They are equal.

One day my son had the problem of 2/3 vs 3/4. Without drawing out a pie chart, how in the world can a child "eyeball" a problem like this and tell what the correct answer is? I've also tried to teach about making common denominators, but that's going over his head at this point.
