Title: Pizza Counting By: Christina Dobson Grade Level: K-2 Related Concepts: Pizza Counting covers addition, multiplication, and fractions with the use of how much pizza you eat, how many pizzas you make, and how many toppings are on each pizza. Synopsis: It begins with a plain cheese pizza, and then toppings start getting added. They all get added in sequential order (so there is a plain pizza, then you add one mushroom, two olives, three strips of green bell pepper, and four slices of tomato; the next page has 5 of one topping, 6 of the next, and so on). After it gets up to having used 20 different toppings, it begins multiplying the number of toppings and showing how you can group different toppings to get the same sum (or product, depending on if you are introducing multiplication yet). After that, it starts cutting the pizza into different fractions and showing how different things have the same number of slices as the pizza (for example, when the pizza is cut into thirds, it shows a triceratops which has 3 horns on its head).

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
