The Ministry has released a new February 2015, 4 page, research monograph (#59) from the What Work’s? series, titled Making Space for Students to Think Mathematically.

The first line establishes the tone for the article “Contemporary views in mathematics education promote classroom practices that value student voice, develop students’ mathematical thinking, and engage students in mathematical inquiry.” (page 1).

The monograph describes some of the practices that enhance classroom learning:

  1. Create positive and safe classroom environments
  2. Provide rich mathematical tasks
  3. Create a math talk community
  4. Ask good questions and listen to student thinking
