I do a lot of funneling questions, especially in my lower tracked class. Their perseverance is so low, I can get tears if I keep the question too broad. One question I am going to use for this course next year is: Can you draw it? Model it? I do a good job of multiple representations in my upperlevel algebra classes. I often say, can you represent it in a different way. Truth is, I am more comfortable with upper level algebra course. When a student doesn’t understand something in my prealgebra course, it is harder for me to build representations. Often there are many different ways which is great, but also confuses some students. Last year was my first year teaching prealgebra and it was COVID – online and no shared manipulatives made it hard. I think getting more manipulatives into the class will help me and the students focus in on the math concept without me walking them through procedures stepbystep.
