dc.description.abstract This video segment, from a fifth-grade mathematics summer program in Michigan, shows a five-minute excerpt of students discussing a math problem that asks them to identify the fraction of rectangle represented by a shaded region. A key feature of this particular problem is that the rectangle under consideration is divided into regions of different sizes and shapes. The segment focuses on one student’s (Mamadou’s) answer of one-half, his explanation, and the discussion that ensues about how his solution differs from solutions that produce an answer of one-eighth. Central in this discussion is the importance of the “whole” when identifying fractions. en_US
