    Hi @tara-stanton

    Awesome to have you as a part of the community. Thanks for sharing your current problem of practice! I can totally relate when it comes to memorization vs. understanding. I definitely did not have a conceptual understanding of mathematics and thus it has been quite a learning journey that I’ll never “finish” to understanding mathematics conceptually.

    In regards to quadratics in particular, we LOVE and actually, @Jon and I both lead some workshops where we use quadratic visual patterns to really unpack understanding. We have that on our “to do” list of tasks to do walk-throughs of. This message might bump that up closer to the top of the list!

    In the meantime, a task you DEFINITELY need to check out is Magic Rectangle. Give it a read and I’m curious to hear your thoughts by commenting here on this thread!
