I am a relatively new primary school teacher (in my fifth year) teaching in a remote area where my kids are about three years behind provincial expectations in mathematics. I am excited about implementing anticipatory activities to spark notice and wonder in my math lessons, however, since your examples are high school level mathematics I will have to be a little more creative to create scenarios to engage students. I myself am not learned in mathematics and find the high school examples difficult to generalize to my .students’ experience. I am working to rectify the situation by upgrading my skills through courses. I understand the concepts generally but think I need some concrete support by way of examples to consolidate my learning. Could you suggest some resources that would be helpful to me? My students are just completing a unit on multiplication and I will be teaching them division in the coming weeks.
