    One of my big takeaways is that, as a middle school teacher (7/8), it’s okay to go back to these simpler multiplicative thinking tasks (for example, the Canadian Flag task) to help my students think a little deeper about multiplicative thinking, especially when working with fractional relationships. I think that this kind of relationship, especially emphasizing the reciprocal nature of multiplicative thinking, will help them when we start our units on proportionality.
