Make Math Talk More Productive with Questioning Strategies

About the Presentation

The Mathematical Practices empower students to use math and to think mathematically. Research tells us that quality mathematical discourse not only helps students share their thinking but also helps guide the thought process. The goal of this edWebinar is to discuss how we can use questioning strategies to help make the math talk in our classrooms more intentional and productive. Viewers have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about the research behind the importance of math talk and how it helps students with the Mathematical Practices
  • Discuss questioning strategies for each of the Mathematical Practices
  • Participate in classroom scenarios at various grade levels
  • Receive a “Supporting the Mathematical Practices and Processes Through Questioning” poster

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 teachers and school and district leaders.
