Hello gail
interesting pictures.. i like how you drew the ratio tables of the cups and money i think it was..
Question(s): Why did you continue to use division if you didnt know all the answers?
Couldnt you use other strategies?
i give you 7/10. You did a great job and all but there is much room for improvement. :) -Nikki
