## Reflection: Complex Tasks Comparing and Ordering Fractions and Decimals Task - Section 4: Closure

Using a task to teach gives the students a chance to get away from the math book.  The components of the task allows the students to work independently, then with their classmates in groups.  This is an excellent way to see what the students know before they work in groups.  As they work independently, I walk around to see their answers.  This gives me an idea of who I will need to work with further on the skill.
