    I love the idea of introducing a new topic this way before students have learned a bunch of “rules” about how they “should” solve it. In a real-life situation, writing out a formula or algorithm is probably not how most people would choose to solve a problem and so giving students an opportunity to develop and reflect on some of those more practical strategies and explicitly connect them to the traditional algorithms is so valuable.
