The Power of Moments

Book cover of The Power of Moments
Our EPIC theme this year (Elevation, Pride, Insight, Connection) focuses on the element of insight this month. Insight is a deep understanding.One way to increase our students' insight is to increase our own. Try playing around with a math concept yourself to develop your insight and to craft questions you might ask the students so they can discover those same insights for themselves. (
