We noticed there were some typos in the lesson. For example, the number of the items are out of order. Also are the ratios in the table for item 5 intentionally incorrect? We felt this was not clear. Is there a line of reasoning which is missing?

Multiplicative reasoning is stated, but not really dealt with in a way where students work on developing their understanding of it, unless the teacher knows to do it on his/her own, through questioning. Perhaps more teacher notes are needed?

The activity is good, but there seems to be errors in #5, which affected my rating.

Although there is an explanation, there isn't enough depth.
