I really like the anticipating and sequencing recording sheet as a concrete tool to use during class. When student groups work through problems or 3 Act Tasks, I generally tend to circulate and mentally take note of who to ask to present anyway, but I feel like this sheet will help me consolidate and get better at sequencing. Anticipating can also be challenging since we often may not consider how a student approaches a problem, but is a great practice to really get in their minds. I agree in the idea of presenting concrete –> abstract strategies. It allows for a low floor and for students who are not as confident in math per se to have the opportunity to share, but also gives a high ceiling for abstract representations. The sequencing can help foster those “a-ha” moments.
