What was your big take away from this lesson?
Use multiple representations and let the students work through their process to explain. This will increase understanding and validate their thinking.
How might you use the tool discussed?
I can see myself using this daily. Working with students with a learning disability I need to be flexible in my thinking and introducing their strengths in math through using their abilities. Many of the students do get math, but from a untraditional point of entry. It may take longer, but it will be worth it so that students reduce math fear/anxiety and build resilience for all math skills.
What is something you are still wondering?
I just need to build my confidence that I can look at things quickly and help students move through the process. I wonder what an appropriate response is when I do not follow the student process, yet they get to the answer.
