Math Questioning Stems are great tools we use as teachers everyday to get students to THINK about the math process. Sometimes we need a little prompt to get our brains going. I did research and found numerous sources for great stem questions and placed them into a document.
***These questions are not content specific (only geometry, division ect.) They can be used by any math teacher in any setting.
Cut apart the question stems and place them on a binder ring near the board, or at your small group station to help students with better understandings of the math process.
