What was the hardest thing about this unit?

For me, the hardest part was trying to divide the subs equally among the people. Most of my ideas were wrong by a small amount(like 0.2 or something) so they didn't work togther and i was confused.

What do you understand now that you did not understand before?

I know understand how to show fractions using a one hour clock. 1/2 an hour is 30 minutes 1/6 an hour is 10 minutes! I also learned how to find 3/4 of any number. Say you trying to find 3/4 of 24. First you cut 24 in half. That is 12. Then you cut 12 in half. That equals 6. After thta you add 12 and 6. 12+6=18. 18 is 3/4 of 24.

If you had to teach your parent something about fractions what would it be and how would you do it?

If I had to show my father something about fractions i would show him how to find which is bigger on a one hour clock. 1/2+1/4 or 5/12+2/6. First I would draw 2 circles (each representing 60 minutes) and cut it in half(1/2=30 minutes) and cut it another quarter(1/4=15 minutes). Then you should add them together, that equals 45 minutes. Next I would show the next fractions. Cut the clock into 12 equal peices and shade 5 in(5/12 is equal to 25 minutes) and then shade in four of the extra pieces (2/6=20 minutes) 25+20=45. So both fractions are equal.
