This is such a refreshing math lesson. Having gone through a UTeach program and studying inquiry-based lessons through college, I went into my first year with such a lack of support and motivation that I reverted back to traditional teaching and my kids were ALWAYS bored. My lessons forced them to sit in their desks and listen for 50 minutes, but this lesson allows them to be the ones doing the thinking. It’s how I’ve always wanted to teach, but I have such a hard time finding ideas and planning enough in advance to get all of my extension questions done. It’s also hard for me to predict what they’ll say having only taught 1 year. I’m still learning what the common misconceptions are!
