Numeracy comprehension is built upon a foundation of mathematical thinking and reasoning, but how do we build this with our students? Supporting math conversations is most effective when built upon teaching models that are research driven and classroom tested. But what does that look like? How do you build a classroom culture of sharing and engagement using math discussion? How do you frame questions that promote flexible thinking over answer getting? This session will explore these concepts of mathematical conversation by focusing on the development of students ability to justify thinking, engage with the reasoning of others through core questions, noticing and articulating, developing contexts and representations for number concepts, and making meaning of operations. Content and resources shared in this session will be primarily K-5 based, but the skill set is applicable across grade levels.
