I notice that the LCD is 8.
I notice that they have different demoninators
I notice that the fraction 3/4 is the biggest
I notice that the fraction 1/8 is the smallest
I wonder if we have to add them together
I wonder why he rented these movies
- Mr. Davis rented 4 movies
- all movies are >1 hour and <3 hours
- all movies are a whole number of hours and some part of an hour, expressed as a mixed number (not as minutes)
- I can convert the mixed number to minutes using a proportion, like 3/4 = x/60
- Searching for Sara is the shortest movie
- The Array is the longest movie
- The movies appear to be listed in order from shortest to longest
- All but one of the fraction parts (of the movie lengths) have a numerator of 1
- why do you need 4 movies for 1 weekend?
- why did he rent these titles?
- if I wanted to watch 2 per night, which two would I watch to have approx. equal viewing time each night?
-The lengths of the movies are in order from least to greatest from the top of the chart to the bottom of the chart.
-The lengths of the movies are expressed as mixed numbers.
-Searching for Sara is the shortest movie and The Array is the longest movie.
-Are we going to compare the lengths of the movies?
-Will we need to find a common denominator for the fractions?
-Is Mr. Davis going to watch all four movies over the weekend?
