I really like the idea of the concreteness fading model and I think that it really helps students with automaticity and flexible thinking. When I teach multiplication of polynomials, I typically do so with an area model but I will now try it with a more concrete model first like the donuts to be more “Prince” with my lesson. I think that anytime we have a model to refer back to in order to jog students memories it will help build the bridge between concrete and abstract.
