My big take away from this was the rationale provided for why preteaching fails. When students are given real world problems students tackle them with the thinking of what skills did my teacher give me to apply rather than the mathematical modeling, making connections and creating an argument approach. This makes so much sense to me now that it is framed this way. I have been stuck in the thinking that if students donâ€™t have the background knowledge how can I ask them to solve given problems.
