### Number Talks

```Protocols and Procedures for Fostering
Mathematics Discourse - Elementary
Sep 16, 2013
(2:00 pm - 2:50 pm)
Outcomes
• Participants will deepen their
understanding of mathematics
discourse, including some background
and rationale.
• Participants will experience Number
Talks and consider how they might be
used as part of a daily routine.

REASONING AND EXPLAINING
1. Make sense of problems and persevere in
solving them
6. Attend to precision
OVERARCHING HABITS OF MIND
CCSS Mathematical Practices
2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively
3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others
MODELING AND USING TOOLS
4. Model with mathematics
5. Use appropriate tools strategically
SEEING STRUCTURE AND GENERALIZING
7. Look for and make use of structure
8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning
Mathematics Discourse
Four Goals for K-2 Number Talks
• Developing Number Sense
• Developing fluency with small
numbers
• Subitizing
• Making Fives and Tens
• Number Conservation

Understanding Math Discourse
• Talk Formats
– Whole-Class Discussion
– Small-Group Discussions
– Partner Talks
Classroom Discussions: Using Math Talk to Help Students Learn
-S. Chapin, C. O’Connor, N Anderson (2003)
Mathematics Discourse
Understanding Math Discourse
• Talk Moves
– Revoicing
• So you’re saying the top number in a fraction
is called the numerator.
– Repeating
• Can you repeat what Miguel said in your own
words?

Understanding Math Discourse
• Talk Moves (continued)
– Reasoning
• Do you agree or disagree and why?
– Waiting
• Please take some quite think time.

Norms
“No one is as smart as all of us are together.”
• Respect
• Individual think time
• Everyone participates
• Everyone helps
• Leave no one behind
• Be positive
• Technology courtesy
Mathematics Discourse
Socio-mathematical Norms
• Errors are gifts, they promote discussion.
• Share a second sentence to connect your
thoughts.
• The answer is important, but it is not the math.
• Build on the thinking of others.
• Ask questions until ideas make sense.
• Think with language and use language to
think.

Table Talk
• Have you implemented Number Talks
as part of your daily routine? What
were some of the benefits and
challenges?
• When in your daily routine could you
incorporate the use of Number Talks?
Mathematics Discourse
• Who would like to share their thinking?
• Did someone solve it a different way?
• Who else used this strategy to solve the
problem?
• How did you figure it out?
