## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Introduction to Unit Rates - Learn to be a smart shopper! - Section 3: Summary

The table discussion for this lesson really wrapped things up and helped me gauge the students' level of understanding.  All students discussed the importance of unit rates and why they are used to make comparisons, and I had one lucky table share out to the whole group.  They shared that "unit rates are important because they provide equality with the units" - which I thought was a great answer for 7th graders!  They went on to say that without the unit rate they thought that one person in their group was the best hopper, but once they calculated the unit rate they realized they were wrong!  I think the hopping lab really helped them to understand the importance of a unit rate.
