day 158: sustained mathematical discourse in partner work

Engaging in Mathematical Discourse: By the end of the school year, Patty Ferrant’s students are able to engage in extended peer work, using academic language and respectful norms for presenting, critiquing, and refining their ideas.

CONSIDER:
What academic language do you hear these students using?

These videos are discussed in the Inside Mathematics guide "Engaging in Mathematical Discourse, Patty Ferrant, 8th Grade," one of 10 practice-focused guides on building classroom climates for mathematical learning.

The videos document key mathematical practices observed in teacher Patty Ferrant's 8th-grade classroom over the course of a school year. In the guide (available as a PDF or an iBook download), you can explore extended narratives and questions for reflection around "engaging in mathematical discourse."
