    Hi @DaveWinkel – you’re right that it can definitely be hard to switch things up mid-year, however I tip my hat that you kept pushing it! 

    George and Michael have provided some great insight here and I’d argue that the belief that math is only answer-getting is a hard belief to shift. However, keep pressing and they will eventually come. 

    Like Michael, I’m also curious to know what strategies you’ve tried so far. Let’s dig deep here and get ready for that brand new class coming this Fall!
