Mathematical discussion is important so that students can learn from each other and explain their thinking. There are 5 practices for teachers to orchestrate productive discussion. A brief description of the 5 practices is below.
*anticipating*likely student response to challenging mathematical tasks;*monitoring*students’ actual responses to the tasks (while students work on the tasks in pairs or small groups);*selecting*particular students to present their mathematical work during the whole-class discussion;*sequencing*the student responses that will be displayed in a specific order;*connecting*different students’ responses and connecting the responses to key mathematical ideas.
