You may find that as this course goes on you could benefit from pumping the breaks and rewatching and retrying some of the prompts yourself. One of the biggest misses I made earlier in my career was not taking time to do the math myself in multiple ways / with multiple strategies. Only by doing the math will we be able to better understand and thus be able to provide a better learning experience for students.
What you see in many videos is what we might be looking for in student work as they complete a problem and then consolidate using student generated approaches. Obviously pacing what you consolidate now vs what you might want to come back to is a big planning decision.
Once you pick what you’re hoping students take away, how might we create a provocation for them to explore?
