about

NCTM standards and the Common Core standards emphasize communication as an integral part of how students should learn mathematics. This book provides a comprehensive approach to facilitating whole class math discussions and addresses how to set up a classroom, cultivate classroom routines, plan for instruction, facilitate discussions, and assess for future improvement. Reflective questions throughout the book enable teachers to develop professionally and support formal workshop or book study experiences. The accompanying PDToolkit website offers video clips from five real classrooms which illustrate whole class math discussions in action,  teacher and student interviews, and chapter PPTs for professional development sessions.

Editorial Reviews

“A great resource on how to develop rich math-talk with students.” - Mona Toncheff, Math Content Specialist, Phoenix Union High School District, Phoenix, AZ     “This book is appealing because it conveys the idea that classroom discussions don’t just happen. It requires careful planning, thoughtful reflection of what the mathematical big ideas are that you want to have students discover throughout the discussion.” - Kristi Anderson, K-5 Math Instructional Facilitator, Lake Hamilton School District, Pearcy, AR
