    This year teaching proportions to 7th graders I started with the chocolate milk task on Desmos and thougth it would automaitlly be engaging and informative. Students did not understand the double number line and I got discouraged and moved on. I tried the balloon task as well – hoew many balloons are needed to lift you. I did a notice and wonder with David Blaine and again thought this would fix the problem. I kept missing the sense making piece and then moving on to the next thing rather then strategically pivoting using data from student answers and instead followed my path of “intersting” activities.
