What was the hardest thing about this unit?
I think the hardest thing about this unit was cutting the subs with the rusty spoon and limiting the amount of cuts and trying to make it so everyone each go an equal amount of sub.
What do you understand now that you did not before?
One thing I understood that i never even knew existed before was splitting the clock into parts to help compare fractions and to tell how one was larger than the other.
What would be one thing you would teach your parents about this unit?
One thing I would teach my parents is how to compare fractions and show them the clock idea. I would also show them how to do the ratio chart and the rectangle (where you split it into half, then into another half.)
