These math talk posters are designed to support your students in having independent conversations about problem solving in math. The posters indicate not only a question or stem to get the conversation going, but also the sentence starter that the other students can use to help him or her form an answer.

You'll get:

* 8 black and white 8.5x11 posters with math discussion starters

* 4 black and white 8.5x11 posters with conversation extenders to help students expand on the discussion

* All 12 posters in a smaller size (4 to a sheet) so that you can print them as cards or reference tools that students can keep at their desks or in centers

* 3 pages of tips for using the posters, introducing them to students, and creating a classroom environment that supports problem solving

Click the green preview button above to see all 12 posters and read the tips for free!
