I found the five Math Minds principles extremely interesting as it provided me with a unique framework to think and reflect on my approach regarding mathematics. One aspect that resonated with my views about teaching and learning mathematics is the concept of a ribboned lesson structure. I connected with this notion as I found that as I student I would often benefit from lessons that were well paced and provided me with time to practice. Also, Principle 5 challenged my thinking and current views as I often make connections or try to find relationships between two concepts, although this may not always be the case. Overall, these principles have challenged and encouraged me to think about mathematics through a new lens.
