    In traditional math lessons, the teacher owns the math. In this lesson style, the students own the math. I had a professor who always asked “Whose math is it anyway?” and I really want to shift my practice towards having it be student-centered by giving them voice through engaging tasks. My biggest struggle in implementing this kind of lesson is getting my students to understand that there are many ways to arrive at a solution and the only wrong answer is to not try. As such, my biggest reservation is building a math culture that encourages my students to take ownership of their math.
