  • 7-8 grade MathHit the skills and the needs of the studentsNot get to a right answer but understand why they got the right answerWhat common mistakes are: learn from errors, dissecting, moving backwardCity building codesHow math connects to real lifeHere’s why the formula worksAs authentic as the 4 walls of the schoolApproach problems as experts doesMain goal not to get the right answer but how you got thereWhere they’re at and how I can get them to where I want them to be.
