## Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Solving Multi-Step problems giving part to whole ratios - Section 4: Closing

Students really appreciated the use of illustrations for this particular problem.  Some comments made were. "Oh man, I get it." " I can see why now!", "Ahhhh this is easy now that you showed us that."  The importance of showing students the correct answer and a way to get there is crucial.  For some students who already understand, this may validate their thinking, and show them another strategy to use in addition to what they already are doing, for others it may be a direct instruction moment that allows students to understand a new objective that they did not understand at the start of the lesson.
