    Because I teach primarily students with IEPs, concrete manipulatives are often my go-to when building basic understanding (for example, understanding that four 1/4 tiles equal one whole). I loved seeing how these manipulatives can be used to build understanding of much more complex concepts as well, and I’m excited to try that in my class this upcoming school year.

    I also love the idea of using student-generated solutions to guide students toward understanding abstract formulas, and then “mapping” future context-less problems onto the problems with context.

    Thanks for a great module!
