Three new cameos this month.
• Making Fractions 1, 2 & 3 are a family with varying levels of difficulty. All are constructed around value relations - that is, using a set of shapes that are fractionally related to each other, setting one of them, any one, not just the largest, as the whole with a value of 1 and seeking the related values of the other shapes.
• MF2 involves a whole from which halves, quarters, eighths and sixteenths have been made.
• MF3 involves a whole from which halves, thirds, quarters, sixths and twelfths have been made.
• MF1 involves a whole from which quarters, fifths, eighths and ninths have been made.
An additional challenge is offered in each task by assigning the value of \$1 to the whole and introducing discussion of money and decimals.
The Task Cameo Content Finder has been updated to include these tasks.

Keep smiling,
Doug.
