This video features real classrooms with teachers helping students think and learn about math. Thinking with Numbers features classroom teachers and students engaged in mental math sessions that foster children's understanding of number concepts. Teachers will learn how to develop and implement successful number talks in their classrooms.
The DVD demonstrates real students in real classrooms, typical of most students in this country. Yet not one of them says, "I can't do this problem." They all try, and they all find a way to solve the problems they are given. Why? Because they have been taught to do math in a way that makes sense to them.
Included on the DVD is a guide with instructions for the facilitator and handouts for teachers. It is an ideal companion to support Kathy Richardson's Developing Number Concepts curriculum resources.
