Highlights and Sticky Notes:

Asking good questions and encouraging students to build on one
another’s thinking gives students voice and enables them to become
more critical thinkers in mathematics.

students move into pairs
to write their ideas, solutions, and strategies. A variety of materials, such
as linking cubes and two-colour counters, are available for students to
choose from when constructing mathematical models, making conjectures,
and connecting their ideas.

  • Wouldn't it be great to use mobile devices to document their manipulatives and narrate their thinking out loud using an app such as Educreations?  - Beverly Ozburn

Scaffolding students’ exploration of a rich task too early can take
away students’ opportunities to explore and build confidence with
solving problems in their own way.

  • May need some opportunities to fail to make the learning richer and more personal. - Beverly Ozburn

Following each presentation, students are invited to paraphrase
what the presenters have shared, to ask questions for clarification, to elab
orate on the presentation, and perhaps to challenge the presenters with a
possible correction or alternative approach.
