Welcome to your first Growing Post.

A Growing Post is 1 post. You will edit it over and over again making additions to it. This post is worth marks. You will be expected to show your knowledge of fractions and learn how to blog at the same time. Have fun and do not leave things to the last minute.

- Create a post and call it ****'s First Growing Post.
- Label it growingpost, fractions (write it exactly like that please)
- In the body of your post please answer the following question. You need to use words and a picture. Which set of fractions is larger 1/2 + 1/6 or 1/4 + 7/12. I would recommend that you use the idea of clocks to show your understanding.
- Find your picture of your final project "The Bike Race Fundraiser" at flickr
- Once you are at flickr and find your picture save it to your desktop or where ever you save your pictures. You should label it ***bikerace. Then upload it to the blog. Once it is there you will have to select it (double click) then cut it and put it into the right spot at in your post. Tell us 2 things about your bike race.

Thus ends part one of the growing post. Stay tuned for part 2!! (This work is due by Monday)

(update Friday Oct. 19)Here are some more things to do

6. Do a google search for fraction games. Find a good site and write a review of the game. Tell everyone what is good about this site. You also need to create a link to the site.

7. Go back to your picture of the bike race. Tell us all about how you calculated the Km positions at a twelfth, sixth and a third. did you see any patterns?

8. What are 2 different ways to find a quarter and 3/4 of a number. Use one of the following 16, 22, or 110.

Happy weekend
