Note from the author:
A complete formative lesson with embedded slideshow, mini lecture screencasts, checks for understanding, practice items, mixed review, and reflection. I create these assignments to supplement each lesson of Pearson's Common Core Edition Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry courses. See also mathquest.net and twitter.com/mathquestEDU.
The outlined content above was added from outside of Formative.

Solve It! Reasoning: Explain why you cannot cut them into congruent pieces, each with size 4/5.
You cannot cut the three 1-squares into congruent 4/5-pieces because 3 ÷ 4/5 is not a whole number.
You cannot cut the three 1-squares into congruent 4/5-pieces because 3 × 4/5 is not a whole number.
You cannot cut the three 1-squares into congruent 4/5-pieces because 3 is an odd number.
