Math Solutions® has announced a new multimedia professional development resource designed to help educators encourage conversation, discourse and “Math Talk” in the classroom.
Classroom Discussions: Seeing Math Discourse in Action includes access to two DVDs showing examples of teachers leading effective conversations about math in classrooms, as well as a comprehensive guide to help teachers create social learning environments where students exchange ideas and increase their proficiency in math. “Math Talk” provides students an opportunity for deeper understanding through communication. Individually or in groups, students articulate and support their ideas and analyze the reasoning of others.
Math Solutions is also releasing five new titles that help teachers meet the Common Core State Standards.
