Instructional Ideas
  • Instead of continuing the discussion question on the website, facilitate a grand conversation in the classroom or post the question on a classroom blog 
  • Bookmark the link for easy access, direct early finishers to complete the interactive when time permits 
  • Make the interactive a center during math rotations, encourage participants to reference their notes as needed 
Classroom Considerations
  • The model's sliders are sensitive, remind learners to move pieces carefully 
  • The discussion question is directed to a thread on CK-12
  • Create a free Ck-12 account to access the interactive 
Pros
  • Offers correct answers and feedback after each response
  • Model pieces are color-coded to match their corresponding fractions
Cons
  • None
