    I think the estimation180 is my favorite resource that was presented. Typically students who may not struggle in math can engage more in math discussion during estimation problems. Part of the reason I think this is true is because there is not a strong expectation that students should end with the exact right answer. This creates a space where it is safer for students to be wrong compared to other math classroom situations.

    Creating more student conversation is important and we need to take steps in that direction. We also need understand that without come student curiosity or interest in a problem, there is not a lot of motivation for students to engage in these discussions and debates
