Today we worked in groups of four (two grade 3 students and two grade 5 students) to collaboratively reinforce our understanding of Fractions. The Dynamos, who are finishing their unit on Fractions right now, helped the Grade 3 students, who are beginning their Fractions unit right now. We started by finding out what they already know, discussing the concepts in more depth and then challenging them with some more difficult problems for practice. The Dynamos also used their computers and their individual projects to illustrate and explain new ideas. Here are some photos of the groups!
