## Building on Student Assets Through Number Talks

This author used Number Talks as an asset-based approach to build on students’ prior knowledge and make connections across strategies in a Grade 7 mathematics class to address unfinished learning that occurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

## Using Mathematics to Design a Droid

Teachers have the opportunity to make mathematics relevant. We leveraged the popularity of Star Wars to engage students in exploring and connecting two dimensions and three dimensions to careers in toy design.

## Student Engagement with the “Into Math Graph" Tool

We introduce the Into Math Graph tool, which students use to graph how “into" mathematics they are over time. Using this tool can help teachers foster conversations with students and design experiences that focus on engagement from the student’s perspective.

## Support and Enrichment Experiences in Mathematics (SEE Math): Using Case Studies to Improve Mathematics Teacher Education

This article describes an innovation in an elementary mathematics education course called SEE Math (Support and Enrichment Experiences in Mathematics), which aims to support teacher candidates (TCs) as they learn to teach mathematics through problem solving while promoting equity during multiple experiences with a child. During this 8-week program, TCs craft and implement tasks that promote problem solving in the context of a case study of a child’s thinking while collecting and analyzing student data to support future instructional decisions. The program culminates in a mock parent–teacher conference. Data samples show how SEE Math offers TCs an opportunity to focus on the nuances of children’s strengths rather than traditional measures of achievement and skill.
