Stuffed with Pizza is a problem created for fifth graders on fraction addition. In the task, two people eat multiple fraction amounts of pizza and students are to use equivalent fractions and knowledge of fraction addition to determine how much pizza was eaten. Scaffolding is used to break down the fractions and lead up to the final question, which contains argumentative language as it asks students to critique the given response on who ate more pizza.
