    Every day does not have to be fun for all students, but if we are able to create a classroom culture and spark their curiosity just one day out of the year then that’s worth it for me. I want my students to find math relevant in their lives and I’m hoping this framework will help.

    I think my school is leaning towards all teachers giving the same homework. If we do a 3 act math task and the homework is out of the book will this work?

    If there are no review days, are students told to practice on their own? If so, how do they practice?

    I heard this idea of retrieval practice on a couple of different podcasts that I listen to. I like brining that idea into the spiraling of the math order of concepts.

    In the long run yes, I want students to memorize certain things. I’m always torn when a middle or high schooler does not know them and they are letting it hold themselves back mentally. I think it is a great point that we memorize things that have no reference to them. I never thought about the alphabet being an order that has no reason to be that order, but numbers are in that order for a reason.

    I first thought about finding the slope of a line on a graph. There is a lot of prior knowledge there and I have really only taught it through memorizing rise or run then reduce. I could only think of stages 4 and 5.
