Let’s talk about math! Creating a classroom environment where students talk and discuss their math thinking is so important to their deeper understanding of math! Using math talk prompts can foster those math discussions and help students learn how to explain their mathematical thinking! These are great discussion prompts as well as questions students can ask themselves when they are explaining their answer in writing.
I love to have the math talk prompts displayed in the classroom so students can refer to them as they are having discussions or during our math talk class discussion time. It helps eliminate students talking down to one another or looking at you with a blank stare!
How do you use math talks in your classroom? I would love to hear! Leave a comment and let me know!
