I enjoyed the Knotty Rope lesson as it had withholding information, anticipation, notice & wonder moments, and estimation throughout.
Withholding information as there were no dimensions of either the rope nor the knots.
Wonder how many knots you could fit on the rope before it ran out.
Notice that the rope got smaller with just the first two knots.
After seeing the dimensions, estimating how many knots before seeing final results.
Something I might add to this lesson would be to use a meter stick/number line to show how the rope shrinks up a certain amount after each knot.
