Brief description:
Number Talks are ten to fifteen minute discussions that take place in the classroom about purposefully designed computation problems. During Number Talks, students are asked to explore and solve problems without the use of manipulatives. An emphasis is placed on explaining and justifying solutions. These exchanges lead to the development of more accurate, efficient and flexible computational strategies.
