Humans are social creatures. We use conversation to process information. Whether it's how you hurt my feelings on the playground or why two sets of items are not equal, we can deepen our understanding through explaining and listening.
This "mathematical discourse" piece has been missing from the math class pie, but now teachers are embracing it and experiencing the incredible result: engaged students who get concepts.
You won't believe the ideas students share when they are pushed to describe their thinking. Kids solve math problems in all different ways. When we let them solve problems and talk about the process, we get a glimpse into their fascinating minds.
Getting started is simple with this set of Math Talk Discussion Cards.
36 front & back cards
