Spooktacular Math Talks
Conversation-starters so rich, they’ll give you CHILLS!
We’ve been in the lab adding 100’s of math talk resources to our teaching activities library and…IT’S ALIVE! This Halloween package is a just a sample of our new rich and chewy math tasks.
(…if you dare!)
Display these problems for the class and use the Key Questions to start exploring diverse problem-solving strategies. This week’s worth of daily conversation-starters can all be solved using many different approaches. Talk about those approaches and elevate our numeracy skills together.
Math talks provide unique opportunities to…
- Focus on the process of problem-solving rather than the solution
- Enhance number fluency, confidence, and communication skills
- Rethink personalized learning with activities that are accessible to all students
- Collect diagnostic, formative, and summative assessment data
Make math more social and fun
