Fractions – introduction to quarters (split 4 ways)

I ordered a pizza to share with my 3 friends. The problem was, we all liked different things.

I liked pizza with cheese, ham and tomato. Mr. Lee liked pizza with cheese and olives. Mrs. Lorigan liked pizza with just cheese. Miss Nolan liked pizza with cheese, ham and pineapple.

How could we share this one pizza?

Create with paper or draw how the pizza will look and write a sentence to describe what you have done.
