Title: Number Talks in the Elementary Classroom Presented by the Center for Mathematics and Science Education

Number Talks in the Elementary Classroom
“The practice of number talks is one of the most powerful vehicles I know for helping students learn to reason with numbers and make mathematically convincing arguments, for building a solid foundation for algebraic reasoning, and for teaching mathematics as a sense making process. If all teachers make this shift in their practice, it would represent a profound advancement in mathematics education.”- Ruth Parker, CEO Mathematics Education Collaborative

Join us as we explore how to incorporate this low-preparation, but high-yield 15-minute classroom conversation into your daily routines. Through this session, you will observe number talks with real students, engage in number talks as a participant, understand how to prepare and design your own number talks, and investigate computation strategies that mirror the progression of students’ understanding.
