Doing mathematics provides unlimited opportunities for children to communicate their ideas. When students talk about math, they pose questions, take risks, and pursue their own investigations. Teachers who have not experienced 'good' mathematical discourse, however, may find it difficult to encourage it in their classrooms. This resource of videotapes and print materials helps staff developers and college instructors create an environment where teachers do mathematics together and develop excitement about students' mathematical learning and thinking.
The package includes:
Talking Mathematics: Resources for Developing Professionals
Talking Mathematics: Supporting Children's Voices
Introductory videotape, Talking Mathematics: Supporting Classroom Discourse
