    I think in high school math I have trouble seeing how to make some of these ideas concrete so they can be modeled with blocks or tiles. I know putting in the time and effort to do so will really help students understand.

    There’s a scene in the movie stand and deliver where Mr. Escalante announces that they are going to start learning about fractions, and he puts on an apron, pulls out an apple and a big knife. That would be a memorable moment that he started with a concrete example. I need to do likewise for my math kids.
