I think this is an interesting question. I am reading these, but I teach older students. The level of "concept knowledge" is lower, so I sometimes struggle thinking about the question because I am overthinking compared to the audience intended. Anyhow, the teacher support materials are still fabulous (as always), definitely worth the price of the chapter.
