    I am a high school math teacher in Alberta and have taught/teaching a math course that has very heavy use of proportional reasoning. From conversions between systems of measurement to income and currency, this course builds on previous exposure to proportional thinking that I need to work on unpacking more before instruction. I need to be more cognizant of starting with concrete thought before jumping to the abstract.

    I know I need to work on reflecting upon student knowledge and setting up mindful scenarios that will help unleash prior student knowledge.
