    Hi Sven like yourself I have taught many different grades and subject. This is what makes the elementary grade challenging to teach as you have to be a generalist and know many different content areas. This can never been underestimated and is key. The stronger knowledge and instructional strategies you have the better for you and your students. Hence this is a reason why I took this course as I have jumped from the primary and early junior grades to now intermediate math. I remember many years ago, when I had to take Calculus as a first year university students and was frustrated partly because I had taken grade 13 Calculus in grade 12 so there was a memory lag.The professor had a dusty chalkboard, had his back to the class and had a thick accent which I could never understand. I dropped the course quickly in Sept and re-took in the summer with another professor. The professor then had these great visuals and the TA was a mature student a former musician whom did great Calculus talks and essentially was using the 5 practices. The success I experienced with the methodology they used still resonates. It is challenging for sure to know it all. It is great that you will have this knowledge to help others. Kyle is a specialist in math and has obviously read lots of professional math books. As educators we only have so much time and we can’t do it all.. Having resources like this helps.
