Making Number Talks Matter

It was great to have meaningful conversation with all of you during the first LCN meeting.

During the first meeting we took a few minutes to read Chapter 1 (What are Number Talks? Why are They so Important?) and start conversation around Chapter 2 (Getting Number Talks Started).  During our next meeting, we will finish the conversation from Chapter 2 and dive into Chapter 3 (Guiding Principles for Enacting Number Talks in the Classroom).

Let me know if you have any questions (rustyanderson@kentisd.org) as you continue the journey.  Here is a Number Talk that I did with 10th and 11th grade students that you can view.  It isn’t perfect, but might provide some insight into the process and how you might capture student thinking.
