## Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Using Different Units to Measure Day 2 - Section 2: Continuation of Measurement Activity

While students are learning to measure and record there are several ideas that they must understand.  One idea is the use of a partial unit.  Although it may have taken 5 tiles to cover a strip, the count can be identified as 4 1/2 or a little more than 4.  Students have a hard time understanding why the 5 tile is not part of the whole number count.
