## Reflection: Modeling Fraction Art - Section 3: Creating Fraction Art

I noticed that several of the students were so interested in creating a picture that they used more whole shapes rather than fractional shapes.  Next time, I will do two things differently when I introduce this activity:

• First, when I model the activity, I will stress more use of the fractional parts and use more of them in my example.
• Second, I will limit the number of whole shapes to 5.  This way the students have to use more fractional parts.
