Reflection: Real World Applications Tiles and Cubes and Clips, Oh My! - Section 3: Measuring With Non Standard Units


As I said earlier in the lesson, I did introduce the 1/2 fraction notation.  You will find that your students are at a variety of ranges in regards to understanding this concept.  I have included two pieces of student work.  You can see that one student understands the concept and can accurately record it.  Another student understands that it was a 1/2 of tile but still has some confusion on how to record it.  I will take note of who needs to work on this and touch base with them as we work through this unit.
