Reflection: Flexibility Fractions of a Set - Section 2: Active Engagement


As the activity took the full math session, I changed my plans midstream and the activity in this section became the evening's home practice piece.  I am confident that the children can complete the first and second question easily, while #3 may be a challenge.  

If you have more than adequate time for students to reason through these 3 problems, and to discuss them in some depth - then go on to use the home practice described in the next section.

However, my class wasn’t ready to complete this section and so I did not assign the activity described in the closing section, instead they are asked to complete these 3 problems, and we’ll open with them tomorrow.
