I was teaching my Calculus students about Optimization which is always really difficult for them. We started with just a picture and I had them jot down what they noticed and wondered and they came up with really great insights and observations. It was a great way for them to recall prior knowledge. I did this using the attached Google slides (in PDF form here) by withholding information and really giving a lot of time for them to anticipate, notice and wonder. I am happy to say that the students who don’t often speak up had great things to say and that they class as a whole did much better with this topic than my classes in the past have.
