Math Talk for Mathematical thinking

Talk Math

Talk Math task cards help students in explaining and communicate their mathematical thinking and problem-solving strategies. As a teacher, you need to identify the key vocabulary you want your students to use. Share it with them. Students can then work individually or in pairs to articulate and defend their ideas and analyze the reasoning

As a teacher you will gain the ability to assess student knowledge through asking “good questions,” and align instruction to ensure each student understands how to use math skills through thinking, talking, and doing.
