FREE Math Talk Questions Poster


What questions do I ask to encourage math talk? 

Creating a classroom where students are able to effectively use math talk during a classroom discussion can be challenging. Many of our students do not know how to communicate their mathematical ideas and strategies using key math vocabulary and concepts. As teachers, we play an important role as we help students identify their thinking processes and build new knowledge by connecting to ideas and concepts that they already understand. 

The Open-Ended Questions poster includes questions to promote mathematical communication in the classroom. You can use these questions to expand a conversation or to get one started. Click here or on the image above to grab a free copy of the poster.
