    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 really enjoyed this discussion with Jennifer, conceptual understanding in my math classroom has always been a goal… still a work in progress but this school year I am hopeful to make more progress with this. My goal is to help my students gain conceptual understanding, help them know more than isolated facts and methods. I want them to understand why a mathematical idea is important and the contexts where it is useful.
