Reflection: Student Ownership Comparing Unit Fractions - Section 3: Group Project


I want each student to experience and contribute to this task, and have a clear responsibility for the success of the group. Because this is a group project, it may be necessary to assign specific roles and responsibilities to students to ensure all students participate in the project.

Some students may be challenged by the experience of folding, and can find success in drawing in the lines and taking over the responsibility of labeling the fractions. So you may want to evaluate this possibility in advance, and create roles. This task can also be completed individually.
