I like the idea of the Hero’s Journey. I do something that uses a similar process from time to time with “Broken Calculators” (something I found online) to try to help the students struggle to gain better number sense, as this seems to be the biggest impediment to their learning math. It is great watching students struggle and come up with completely different answers, or to realize their mistakes as they work. I still have some students who just will not participate regardless of what I do, but I am working on it. In this particular example from the video, I really liked the double line graph because I believe it would be the one that my student’s would best understand and be able to use.
