8/11–Equivalent Fractions Race during workshop today gave me time to do a quick informal assessment of students. Four cards are drawn to build 2 fractions. On each turn, students can choose to swap out the card drawn or put it on the bottom of the draw pile with the goal of being the first to build a pair of equivalent fractions.
8/12–Lots of discussion all week about what the equals sign means, much of it prompted by students trying to record their work while playing Sweet Sixteen. Students use their cards to build the target number and must record how they did so.
