I’m looking forward to developing a better understanding of proportions. Sometimes I take for granted how I, as a person who enjoys math, see the relationships with numbers. Even when we were asked to count the blocks, my instinct was to group them by 2s. I wonder how many of my 7th graders would do the same or would they just count 1 at a time. I want my kids to realize that just because they are not “math people”, that they can learn to recognize the same things that I sometimes take for granted to help them become better problem solvers.
