Number Talks: Building Number-Sense and Mathematical Reasoning

Number Talks are a great anticipatory set for building number-sense, introducing new heuristic math strategies, and developing deeper mathematical reasoning. The development of mathematical heuristics, or mathematical rules of thumb, greatly improves a student's ability to solve more complex math equations and multistep word problems. Daily Math Talks can be used to front-load or review math concepts that reinforce or stretch a student's math problem-solving abilities. With teacher-students and student-student collaboration and guidance, the Zone of Proximal Development for learning is greatly expanded. Math Talks are a Socratic math dialectic that is designed to build critical thinking in mathematics and a safe harbor for students to try and test new mathematical strategies and problem-solving. 

Gersten and Chard say number sense "refers to a child's fluidity and flexibility with numbers, the sense of what numbers mean and an ability to perform mental mathematics and to look at the world and make comparisons."
