    I had two major takeaways from the course. The first was the lesson on how to take a general textbook problem and turn it into one that sparked curiosity. I am so excited to realize that we don’t have to pull out all the bells and whistles to make math moments for our students — it can be as simple as just not providing all of the problem upfront and having a series of notice, wonders, and estimations along the way. The second major takeaway is the work that you’ve put together on spiraling. I have learned of spiraling, but I was not sure how to begin to approach it. I am excited to begin the work now of breaking down my learning goals and strands so that I can plan out what it will look like in a spiraled format. Thank you both for all of the amazing work you’ve put into this workshop. I really appreciate it!
