Visuals are so important. I believe I do not have a good conceptual understanding of math. As a co teacher, I had the opportunity to hear things teacher would say and connect the dots to build math skills upon each other and I was just beginning to have great lightbulb moments of making connections as I listened to teachers…. but my teachers and the teachers I work with do not use many visuals so the math skills are often just math skills… with no dots connecting reasoning.
I need to use more visuals and estimations and allow more think time.
