      Hi Bianca,

      I like how your essential questions that you listed are very much student focused. I think students would be delighted in learning about how "applicable" the math skills their learn are in the real word. Also, translating mathematics into English is a cool way of saying that math is confusing. I believe sometimes math is so confusing that it sounds foreign to me. So, to put mathematics into easy to understand, english language, it'd probably be very beneficial.
