Did you find some measurements easier to convert than others?

Fractions are a large part of baking. Ingredient measurements are often given in quarter cup increments. In fact, small measurements are sometimes given in eighths of a teaspoon. In order to successfully bake, it is important to be able to work with fractions. Recipes will need to be doubled or halved depending on the quantity that needs to be made. Baking, therefore, requires an understanding of fractions. When you can work effortlessly with fractions, you have the skills to bake up whatever you are in the mood for. Who doesn’t like a warm chocolate chip cookie now and then? You are having a get-together and are expecting 30 guests. You plan on serving Chocolate Chip Cookies. Use your knowledge of fractions to re-write the recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies. The recipe card states that it makes 60 cookies. What will need to be done in order to make 30 cookies? Show your work neatly. List all steps taken as you recalculate each ingredient and then re-write the recipe card. Discuss what you learned about fractions from this activity. Did you find some measurements easier to convert than others? Why do you think this is so? Chocolate Chip Cookies 2 1/4 cups flour 1 tsp. baking soda 3/4 tsp salt 12 tbsp butter 1/3 cup sugar 1/2 tsp vanilla 3 eggs 2/3 cups chocolate chips Please make sure that you show all calculations and explain the entire process of dividing each ingredient amount. Imagine you are explaining division of fractions to someone who is seeing it for a very first time. Do not convert the ingredients to decimals. Here is an example showing all possible steps one would need to take. Please list your work in a similar way, showing all work & explaining your steps.
