In this lesson, the teacher gives students a task to increase the size of last year's garden by half and then determine how many bushels of cucumbers the new garden would yield. The teacher uses a "poster method" whereby the students work collaboratively on a poster to draw their answers and show their work. After they have the opportunity to solve the problem, "travelers" will be assigned to visit each small group to receive that group's explanation of the answer. Once the "travelers" visit each group, they take the information back to their original group to edit or confirm their group's answer and drawing. The students have not been formally introduced to the concept of proportions. This task introduces proportional reasoning in a context that offers the opportunity to visually represent the mixed numerals in the proportion through their drawings Students reason through solving the problem rather than relying on a learned procedure.
