Number Talks (K-12) – Number Talks are short, daily exercises aimed at building number sense. Number sense is the ability to play with numbers meaning students can visualize problem-solving, perform calculations quickly, and are flexible in their mathematical strategy. During a number talk, students are thinking, asking their peers questions, and explaining their own thinking all while the teacher records the thinking. Number talks can be stand alone or integrated into your daily math lesson. Skills used in number talk discourse transfer to science and literacy.
