Illuminations: Expanding Our Pattern Block Fraction Repertoire

In this lesson, the students expand the number of fractions they can represent with pattern blocks by increasing the whole.

Instead of representing the whole with one yellow hexagon, the students explore fractional relationships when two, three, and four yellow hexagons constitute the whole.
