## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Apple Farmer Problem Solving - Section 4: Closing

I collected the exit slips and graded them. Most importantly, I identified students who needed more support with these concepts. Many students demonstrated an understanding of fractional conversions: Proficient Example. I noticed others, Nearing Proficient, got at least one of the problems correct. I think this student misread the first problem. However, this shows how important attending to precision (Math Practice 6) truly is! Finally, there were some kids who didn't quite connect ideas today: Novice Example. This student was able to grasp: 1/2 a kilogram = 500 grams. However, it became challenging for him to transfer this understanding to 1 whole and a half = 1,500 grams.
