My big takeaway was being “blown away” by the massive number of multiple representations you showed from the most basic of concrete to a higher level of concrete on to representation followed by abstract. The way that you connected the representations so seamlessly is awe-inspiring. As I was watching the video I was reminded along the way of how some of these “low floor” representations tie into much higher algebraic thinking. As a previous respondent noted, we get sucked into thinking that multiple representations are the big 5 of algebra but they are so much more. This video shows me how much more I need to anticipate and be aware of the various levels where my students are comfortable and think of ways I can guide them to emerge to a higher level of understanding.
