Teaching Kids to Speak Like Mathematicians

2020-09-08T19:42:51+00:00

In this article, you will learn:

  • Language plays a critical role in learning mathematics.
  • Students are expected to use specialized vocabulary in mathematics.
  • The teacher’s role is to show students how to articulate their thinking using specialized vocabulary in mathematics.
  • Direct teaching of this specialized vocabulary and the use of sentence frames facilitate this process.

Teaching Kids to Think Like Mathematicians

2020-09-01T20:53:09+00:00

In this article, you will learn:

  • Providing students with questions to foster metacognition helps them expand their thinking, develop metacognitive skills, and become more aware of their own strengths and weaknesses.
  • Ownership statements help the student articulate their thinking—their metacognition—out loud. Over time students should be able to use these statements to clarify their conceptual understanding, computational fluency, and problem-solving skills.
  • The Questions to Foster Metacognition can be thought of as “what teachers should be saying”—or, more accurately, ideas teachers can use to support students’ metacognition in grade appropriate ways. These questions should be modeled by the teacher and then gradually handed over to the students themselves.
