I’m glad these topics are being discussed! Lately, I’ve been feeling like I wish I had some insight on how my high school students were taught basic math skills like addition and multiplication. Some of my students get to our high school classes and they still add on their fingers and require a multiplication chart to do any of the other work we are doing. I feel like making meaningful connections with addition and multiplication would greatly help them succeed with the more complex tasks we are doing. I also want to utilize these strategies in remediating the learning for students who are struggling with these things.
