Developing the Mathematical Practices for Productive Student Talk

Steve Weimar, The Math Forum @ Drexel
Jim Dooley, Colonial School District

NCSM 2012: Session 156

http://mathforum.org/workshops/ncsm2012/ - all of the Math Forum's presentations and more

Students are talking but is it productive? Are they improving conceptual understanding and developing procedural fluency? Are they accountable to rigor and community? An external coach and a district supervisor explore their use of the mathematical practices of the Common Core State Standards as a platform for developing effective talk.
