## Reflection: Unit Planning Mixed Numbers Task - Section 3: Closer

Now that I’m at the end of my fractions unit I’m feeling pretty confident in my teaching methods and practices.  I also feel pretty good about the level of effort and depth of knowledge my students obtained from this unit.  They worked hard and mastering concepts using numerous tasks and games.  They persevered!  My biggest sense of accomplishment is amount of models I incorporated into this unit.  It would have rather easy to just teach equations for adding and subtracting fractions but I did what I needed to do.  I taught the students the concept of adding and subtracting fractions.  They were hands-on throughout the whole thing and there was no skimming the surface.  Job well done!
