Student Interaction in the Math Classroom (2007) — Occasional Teachers

Student Interaction in the Math Classroom (2007)

This document is from the Literacy and Numeracy Secretariat’s Research into Practice series.  It focuses on how teachers can “support meaningful, high-quality interaction in the math classroom.” The four page article discusses the importance of moving from computation-based math questions to questions that require higher-order thinking. It also raises the issue of the challenges that teachers face in engaging students in complex math thinking. In order to meet those challenges strategies to encourage high-quality student interaction and guidelines for whole-class math talk are outlined.
