In my sixth grade class I was wondering about using this task to introduce a part to part ratios by including the amount of water that accompanies the hot chocolate scoops.
I am wondering about how to lower the floor with linking cubes. If I put 3 of one color to represent the scoops and 8 cubes to represent 8 fluid ounces. It looks like a total of 11 but the scoops and water wouldn’t be measured as 11 total because it is a solution. Would that be confusing example of part to part or a good one because you really need to focus on the part to part not the part to whole?
