Reflection: Self-Talk Fractions as Multiples of Unit Fractions: Using Models - Section 1: Anticipatory


Teacher's Explanation!

Students need to be in constant communication as they are learning new math concepts. When we present problems with real-world implications, we demonstrate that what students are learning has value.  Additionally, modeling how students should respond and discuss problem solving allow them to see that there are many ways to get at one problem.
