    Something that is new(er) to my beliefs and understandings is the idea of “emerging” models for tools and representations.

    For years, I would “show” kids all the different representations… but they aren’t helpful when I do it that way. What I now try to do (keyword is “try”) is create situations that will help emerge models and representations so that kids OWN the thinking (instead of just mimicking me).
