Talking Mathematics: Supporting Children's Voices.
Corwin, Rebecca B.; And Others
Rather than present a body of predetermined knowledge to be mastered in mathematics classes, teachers need to develop a curious, problem-posing habit of mind. This book contains materials to support teachers and teacher education students who are interested in developing a culture of inquiry and communication in their mathematics classes. It contains theory about why mathematical talk is important, practical ways to encourage and support that talk, a set of pertinent readings, several challenging problems to try with students, and a list of resources.
