When I look at your strand from this video of linear equations from Solving Linear Equations to Elimination (Systems), it looks like you get this all done in 5 days. In my class this is many months of building foundations and applying them. I am assuming you are doing the same.
What I am taking from this course though is that I don’t start with notes and a few problems and then practice and problem solving. I instead start with problem solving to spark interest. Once I have laid this foundation I have used the vocabulary and the students have found their own process to solve that gets internalized. I find when I do it backwards, I can do notes maybe at the end of class that bring together all the important pieces in a summary rather than vocab and processes that really had no meaning when I do it at the beginning. The practice gets woven in in chunks throughout the week.
