Mathematical Conversations for Next Generation STEM Students: Constructing Viable Arguments and Critiquing Other’s Reasoning

Wednesday, November 11, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

math talk

Presented by Amy LeHew, Curriculum Developer, TenMarks
Sponsored by TenMarks


Imagine a classroom where students engage naturally in mathematical conversations. In this environment, students can explain and expand upon STEM ideas, justify their reasoning, are naturally inquisitive, and work to understand the explanations of others. Increasing and improving students’ mathematical conversation begins with well-planned expectations and practices. In this recorded webinar, Amy LeHew, Curriculum Developer at TenMarks, explored how to promote productive math talk.

Topics included:

  •  The benefits of mathematical discourse
  • Setting up the STEM classroom environment
  • Planning for math conversations
  • Evaluating students’ math talk

Learn how to enrich the mathematical conversation in your own classroom. This recorded webinar will benefit elementary and middle school teachers with math as a core responsibility, as well as administrators and math coaches.

Join the STEM Learning: Full STEAM Ahead community to participate in online discussions with peers, for invitations to upcoming webinars, to view past webinar recordings, to take a quiz and receive a CE certificate for a past webinar, and for access to more resources.
