## Reflection: Shared Expectations Division Models to Solve Problems - Section 1: Warm-up

The model my students created does not match the question. The division they modeled is correct, but not for this context. It doesn't show 6 groups of 2, which would be the matching model for 6 people getting 2 tacos. Although I can see that they understand making models, I could have broken them into groups and had one group create groups of 2 to see how many groups of 2 we could make, which matches this problem, and one group could make a problem that matches the model that was created.
