    biggest take away:

    “its thinking about what tasks are we giving students to help them understand what is happening in their life”

    (math story questions can open a discussion around making sense of society/things around us i.e., working for money, how much earnings we use on necessities, how circumstances differ etc.)

    More:

    the key with maths is getting more children involved

    teachers must be willing to do things differently to what they’re used to/how things were done for them

    how do you see/describe your students, are you using asset-based language, or solely focused on what they do not have
