## Reflection: Advanced Students Fractions Review: Simplifying Fractions - Section 3: Partner Work

Before students begin their partner work, it may be helpful to have a brief discussion about what successful and respectful partner work looks like.  Otherwise, higher level students have a tendency to dominate the discussion and may hurt, whether intentionally or unintentionally,the confidence of the lower level student.

I will lead the discussion with the following questions:

If you've found that your partner has made a mistake, how will you let them know?

If you don't agree with your partner, how will you resolve the problem?

Why is it important for each student to explain their steps?
