Need an engaging math activity for the first few days of school?

This will get students engaged and thinking mathematically in your classroom.  It is a great set up for group work that encourages asking questions, finding ways to represent thinking, and is accessible to all. What a great way to start the year!

The 1-10 Card Investigation

We are always on show . . .

“The questions we ask in class teach students how to ask questions. How we pursue dialogue models reflectiveness. Students watch who we call on, or don’t, and learn about fairness. We teach them when and how to interrupt by when and how we interrupt. We teach them how to listen by how carefully we listen. If they see us admitting that we don’t know something, we encourage intellectual honesty as well as humility. We are always modeling. And students are always watching.”
