Product Description
Get your students talking about functions, domain/range, graphing functions, and more! Snapshot Math to Talk About: Functions includes 25 questions and tasks designed to be snapshots of learning, reviewing, or recycling of skills that promote math discourse. Snapshot Math to Talk About can be used to complement your curriculum after initial instruction has taken place.

The snapshots vary in difficulty and skill level to promote conceptual learning and deeper thinking. Some snapshots focus on vocabulary, others focus on students creating problems to solve, while still others focus on explaining the mathematical understandings related to the skill/concept. Some snapshots are open-ended and have more than one right answer. Collaboration is encouraged through some of the snapshots where students are asked to work with and talk with another classmate. Snapshot Math can be used as a math warm up at the start of class, as a review after the day’s lesson, as a part of small group instruction, as an independent task, or as a formative assessment.

Snapshot Math can be projected onto a whiteboard as a math warm up, a lesson wrap up, or a skill review. Students can record their thinking in their math notebooks to share during discussion. Students’ ideas then can be added to the snapshot to show multiple ways of thinking. Another option is to provide students with a copy of a snapshot during small group instruction in a plastic sleeve that they can write on and erase.

Different snapshots can be used to provide for differentiation. Modeling using a think aloud and scaffolding can be used to support different readiness levels when using Snapshot Math. Snapshot Math provides short bursts of math that encourages deeper thinking and fosters math talk.

Keep Snapshot Math short and collaborative where students do the talking. Use Snapshot Math to monitor student understanding. Pick and choose the snapshots that will work best with your students and your learning goals. Have students create a snapshot to go along with a current unit of study using the blank template.
