Number Talks: Whole Number Computation, Grades K–5: A Multimedia Professional Learning Resource



Number Talks

A five- to fifteen-minute classroom conversation around purposefully crafted computation problems that are solved mentally.

The best part of a teacher’s day.
This resource was created in response to the requests of teachers—those who want to implement number talks but are unsure of how to begin and those with experience who want more guidance in crafting purposeful problems. This dynamic multimedia resource supports teachers in understanding:

how to follow students' thinking and pose the right questions to build understanding;
how to prepare for and design purposeful number talks; and
how to develop grade-level-specific strategies for the operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
Number Talks supports the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. It also includes an abundance of reference tables to help you quickly and easily locate strategies, number talks, and video clips.

New to the Common Core version:
Number Talks is now updated with Common Core connections. You'll find the same great content, only now video segments are highlighted throughout to illustrate how Number Talks provide a vehicle for students to develop and utilize specific Standards for Mathematical Content. Video segments are also highlighted throughout to illustrate how Number Talks support students in developing the Mathematical Practices.

Facilitator's Guide
While the book may be used as an independent resource, it is also structured to provide a framework for collaborative learning groups or to provide professional development opportunities through grade-level teams, individual schools, or districts. Chapter 9 serves as a facilitator's resource, providing guidance for use of the video clips by grade level along with discussion questions to support reflection and collegial conversations about number talks and students' learning.
