Having read the responses before mine, I thought what can I add?
My connection to what I have experienced in class. Many times I have asked students what relationship the numbers have when using multiplication or division concepts and not realized I truly was using a math concept or term because it is so subtle. Many of my struggling learners didn’t see a relationship….because it was relative and not absolute. Now, I understand why they didn’t understand. Oof!
I think I can work to visually get them to see the relationship because I have tools that can act as a step ladder to get my students into the concept. It is hard to see the missing steps when you can just “see” the relationship.
