Prompting productive mathematical discussions

Mathematical conversations are crucial to mathematics learning. By trying to explain their problem-solving approaches and solution strategies to convince others that they are right,students refine their thinking and improve their problem-solving skills. Appropriate tasks, inwhich everyone canmeaningfully contribute ideas, also help students feel valued andmathematically competent. This workshop will be packed full of tasks, ideas and structures to encourage rich mathematical discussions with links to a range of resources.
