This unit was a bit confusing for me at first, but things became clear once I looked at it a bit closer. And that last quiz--I think I did overthink that one. It didn't occur to me that I had to actually cut the house in half until the quiz was over. But I did find a way to get that second fraction with an operation that works almost every time (if the numbers were put in right). I still have some trouble with that second page where I had to draw a rectangle in a way that it made the shaded part that part out of a whole. In all, I think I learned a lot from this unit and now know that much more about this fact of life called math.
