You will learn how to make a simple hack to your curriculum so that students are empowered to think more critically and creatively about mathematics and estimation. Curriculum is usually the one asking all the questions in math class. Let’s shift that a bit. I riff of the unit of measurement of time and make a small change so students are the ones asking questions. My Math Minions are back to explore this hack with me too.

You will learn one of my favorite questions to help me better gauge the number sense and mathematical reasoning of many math students. It can’t be any old question. It was very purposefully crafter. My Math Minions are back and I ask them that same question.
