Reflect:

~ How can you make questions at your grade level irresistible to students so that they have to know the answer?

~ How can you let the math serve conversation, and not the other way around?

~ How can you use real life situations to get students to ask the questions?

~ How can you move from having all the answers to being a co-learner with your students?

~ Where can you find examples of the math you are teaching in your everyday life?

~ How can you get students to think about what information matters in trying to solve a given problem?

Post your thoughts to the Questions/Comments/Solutions link above.
