Abstract (type = summary)
In clip 5, researcher Carolyn Maher then asked the students to compare one half and one quarter and determine the difference between the two. The students worked in their groups to build models that would help them solve the problem. Erik and Alan worked together to find a model that would show the difference between one half and one fourth. Alan built a model and concluded that one half is bigger than one quarter by one quarter. Michael and Brian each built a model of two dark green and four light green rods. Brian exclaimed that it’s not bigger and Michael said that he knew why one fourth was not bigger than one half. He explained that one half has a two in the denominator and one quarter has four as the bottom number and that it would therefore take two dark greens and four light green rods. Michael used reasoning to explain why one fourth is smaller than one half. Brian said that he had never thought of it in that way. Then, Brian asked him to re-explain. Michael used his written notation for one half and one quarter and re-explained it to him.

Graham, whose partner was not present, spoke with the researcher about the solution to the problem. Using the same model as Michael and Brian, he explained directly, upon questioning, that one half was larger than one quarter by one quarter. Alan then built another model that showed the difference between one half and one quarter. He used two orange rods and four yellow rods, and concluded that one could “quarter a train of orange rods”. Erik then tried to build a model using the two brown rods. He found that that model could also be built to show fourths, and told Alan that they could keep going down by two, indicating: “Brown, you minus two, take that rod, and you can quarter that one. Brown, black then dark green!” Erik reasoned to find models that could show halves and quarters. Alan explained their method to the researcher, who asked them to repeat it to researcher Robert B. Davis.
