I really like the different stages in this lesson. The students will know where they are at all times. Ther are lots of oppoertunites for the students to discuss their learning. I like the example problem of the Pizzas at a sleepover. This gives a great opportunity to connect prior learning. I would really like to hear how your students got on with this lesson. Great Job.

Technical Remarks:

Good use of Technology. I enjoyed seeing how you used the document camera. I am trying to get some for my school now.
