Questions to consider:
  • How do the fraction pieces help students reason about this problem? How is this model different from the linear model featured in the Fraction Tracks game?
  • What questions would you ask to help students justify their reasoning?
  • What kind of reasoning (inductive or deductive) are students using in this example? Why do you think this? If this were your classroom, what might you do next? Why?
