I would like to comment on Luke and Kates. There slide is good because it shows how you can use money to help solve fractions which is a BIG help since we us money everyday anyways.

I noticed they did long division to find the answer and the used LCD to compare the can amounts.

I would like to comment on Carmen's and Jessica's. There slide is very clear, it showed the solution and how to figure out who has the best deal.
They divided the amount of money by the cans to get the answer.

I'm commenting on Jessica's and Carmen's. It was really neat and and it was easy to read because you outlined it in marker and wrote it big. The explanation and strategy made it easy to fallow aswell. They were just saying they divided the total amount of money by the cans to get how much one can equils.

I am leaving a comment about JEssica's and carmen's poster. I thought there formula was good but hard to figure out in your, because personally i don't like doing just long division in my head. I thought the strategy was good though. One part that confused me though was the numbers in the box on the right it said \$1.25 x 12 = 1.50 + 12.50 = 14.00
and they said that they divided it and it = 1.25 but then they did the oppisite (multiplying and they got a different number. Because when you reverse a proccess it should be th esame.
Eg. 8/4 = 2 then you go backwards 2 x 4 = 8 its sitll the same number

thats all :)
