Hai Nguyen 11/15/05 MTED 110 In-School Assignment A The school I went to observe was John Muir Fundamental Elementary  school in Santa Ana. It was Mrs. Garcia’s 2nd grade class. The math topic of the  day was fraction. I spoke to Mrs. Garcia beforehand and she told me by  performing this activity, students will become familiar with fractions, and have a  meaningful experience to relate them to. She hoped that students will become  more comfortable with using fractions and have a better understanding of them.  Specifically, she wanted to the students, by the end of the class, will be able to  write a fraction to describe what part of a region is shaded. They will also be able  to name the numerator and denominator in a fraction, and finally, be able to  identify equal fractions. In the beginning of class, she asked the students to imagine them having  to share a pizza with 7 of their friends. “How would you divide that pizza up so  that each of you received an equal amount?” With this question in mind, she told  the students that through this activity they will learn how to divide something into  equal parts by learning about fractions.

First, she used folded pieces of paper and told students to shade certain  parts of the paper to demonstrate different parts of a whole. Students seemed  like they were having fun folding the papers and coloring in the parts. She
