    Comparing fractions proved too tough for all but seven of the responders to this week’s edition of Tuesday Graph Trivia:  The correct answer was that the two-fifths of Mrs. Warriner’s students in her two/three block is greater than the seven-eighteenths of the kids eligible to vote in Ms. McNamara’s one-two block.  They will all be receiving Patriot Pay and an entry in the winner’s raffle.  You will all have another chance to prove you know your fractions next week!

    For this week’s Tuesday Graph Trivia, it’s back to fun with fractions!  This one will require some serious skills!  It’s posted on the form and in the Commons, but here’s what you have to figure out:

     

    "Give a comparison that shows which is greater:  the fraction of students who are eligible to vote in Mrs. Warriner’s 2/3 block or those who are eligible in Ms. McNamara’s 1/2 block."

     

    Both fractions must be correct and in lowest terms. Answer using the Google form on the Jefferson webpage under Quick Links by 3 pm on Wednesday.  Students who submit correct answers get Patriot Pay and are entered into a raffle for the 2019 nominee of their choice. Good luck!
