    As teachers we feel like we have not done our job if studnets cannot complete an algorithm so we teach and drill the procedure with no sense makine involved. Allowing students to push through times of productive struggle gives them ownership in learning and develops understanding of what is happening which can then be applied to a “how can I represnt the what mathematically”.
