    For me, the transition from thinking additively to multiplicatively illuminated by the “magic wand” example was eye-opening. I remember one of the first tasks I gave students this year involved determining missing values in which many defaulted to additive thinking when multiplicative was needed to move towards the answer. This is something I have started to teach explicitly with my 6th grade students to help develop their awareness of the difference!
