Reflection: Hershey Bar Fraction Review - Section 2: Beginning the New Activity


Question 2 was really difficult for students to understand so I sometimes asked this, “Which number is bigger – 50 or 100?  How many “times” bigger is 100 (2 times bigger).? Which means how can I use 2 to make 50 increase to 100 or how can I use the 2 to make 100 reduce to 50 (50 times 2 or 100 divided by 2)?  It is the same logic here only 50 and 100 are now fractions.
