Number Talks

Number Talks are brief mathematical discussions (typically 5 - 15 minutes) that engage students in finding all the possible methods of a mental math problem. 

During Number Talks students have the opportunity to:

1. Clarify their own thinking. 
2. Consider and test other strategies to see if they are mathematically logical. 
3. Investigate and apply mathematical relationships. 
4. Build a repertoire of efficient strategies. 
5. Make decisions about choosing efficient strategies for specific problems.
