Reflecting on Math Homework

Each week students have an open-ended math homework question to complete. On Thursdays or Fridays students share their strategies and solutions with a partner. The conversations that I hear always make me smile. Students are genuinely interested in their peers’ work and are increasingly using math vocabulary to ask questions and share their own thinking. After the partner sharing we look at some answers as a class and further discuss best strategies and ways to communicate our thinking.
