I used this task in my 5th grade classroom. It involves adding three fractions with unlike denominators. When the fractions are added, the sum is greater than one. The students also need to compare two mixed numbers to decide which mixed number is greater. The task requires them to decide who ate the most pie based on their comparison of two mixed numbers.
