I really enjoyed learning about the math models and principles. The one significant aspect that resonated with me was that working memory is limited. I think this is an important reminder for all educators, as most times we tend to get carried away and want to teach the most that we can, in order to be efficient with time. Although this is possible, we need to ensure that we are not overloading our students’ memory, as this can cause for information to be misunderstood, lost, or completely forgotten. As a result, it challenges our current views of time, and the overall methods behind teaching. I will definitely take this information, and remember it when teaching any subject, especially math.
