Do you want to increase your fourth graders' student-to-student mathematical discourse and their ability to be flexible mathematical thinkers? Number talks is the perfect way to achieve that goal. With this unit you will receive a month's worth of highly engaging number talks for December of fourth grade. During this unit students will develop their mathematical flexibility as they engage in a variety of problem solving activities.
With this unit the following mathematical practices are addressed:
•MP.1 Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them
•MP.2 Reason abstractly and quantitatively
•MP.3 Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others
•MP.6 Attend to precision
•MP.7 Look for and make use of structure
•MP.8 Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning
You will no longer need to think of a number talk for your students each day as we have done all the thinking for you. Just gather your students, take a look at your lesson, and enjoy the mathematical academic conversations your students will be engaged in.
