Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Fraction Partners of One Whole - Section 3: Concept Development


You can see in my reflection video that this lesson went well. I'm really glad that I used the activity with students names.  This seemed to really help make connections for them with understanding numerator and denominator.   While there doesn't seem to be a lot of things for students to "do" in the concept development of this lesson, remember that the entire concept of fractions and numerator and denominator really require productive struggle for most students.
