    I think that all rote skills have an exciting idea that you can apply them to, or an exciting puzzle that you’d have to apply with them.

    They may know how to do long-division all day long, but can they use a ratio table to find the answer to a division problem?

    I think 3-act tasks and problem strings with proportional reasoning (pam harris) will really help you with this.
