And so I studied, I talked, I shared, I watched, and I read. Finally, in an effort to get started and share with my department I tried out a number talk. Toughest part was landing on which of the many great problems to use.
I was able to do the Number Talk twice and video tape both times. My audience both times included 30-40 HS math teachers from 3 different schools. I was impressed, amazed and energized by the Number Talks and the feedback. I am looking forward to rolling them out in my own class and helping other teachers begin the journey as well.
