Great reflection and awesome question! This is where Making Math Moments is more of an art than a science. While providing productive struggle is the key, how we try to draw out that productive disposition is a difficult task. It can very easily flip to unproductive if students aren’t able to access the task with models and strategies from their own tool belt. This is also hard when we are so used to “telling” vs helping students emerge new strategies.
