Transcript of Math Practices in the Classroom

Think Pair Share
Teachers ask a question or assign a problem and allow students to think and work with a partner for one to three minutes before requesting an answer to the question or problem.
Showing Thinking
Teachers incorporate strategies that promote Every Pupil Response. Ex: thumbs up/thumbs down, use of white boards for responses

Grouping and Engaging Problems
Students are given challenging problems to work on and allowed to work on the problem in a group of two, three or four
Using Questions and Prompts
Teachers increase their ability to ask supporting questions that encourage students to continue working, providing hints or cues without giving students the answers, and ask probing questions to better assess student thinking and current understanding
Allowing Students to Struggle
Students solve challenging problems by being allowed to struggle with challenging problems. They need to understand that mathematical problems do not usually have quick, easy solutions.
Questioning and Wait Time
Teachers provide thought-provoking questions to students, then allow students time to think and work toward an answer.
Encouraging Reasoning
Students are encouraged to carefully think about mathematics, to understand their level of knowledge, and accurately communicate their thinking. Reasoning requires students to pull together patterns, connections, and understandings and then apply their insight to finding a solution to a challenging problem.
