    What are your big take-aways from this episode? 

    What are you hoping to implement now?

    What will you need more time to reflect on prior to implementing?

    I have already watched the recorded webinar. One takeaway that I jotted down in my notes was making things visual. You guys referenced the Fraction Fill, but I am still thinking about the Milk Jug Problem. I think my students will be more independent learners when they can create these types of sketches on their own.

      Awesome take away!
      I’d encourage a LOT of modelling using area models, set models, and linear models and continue to push students to utilize models. One hard part we often forget is students often don’t know how to model concretely or visually completely on their own. We must be paving that path for them.
