    Hi Mary!

    I wonder if this task/unit was a helpful task for students or whether it was too far beyond their level of readiness at the time?

    For example, when 1/4 of the driveway was shovelled, you mentioned that they were struggling to grasp the concept that 3/4 was not shovelled. This leads me to wonder whether students have a firm enough understanding of how to represent fractions in general prior to digging into fractions operations and more specifically, multiplication of fractions.

    What do you think?
