Math Exchanges

Guiding young mathematicians in small-group meetings

This timely book uses small-group instruction as the centrepiece of a math workshop approach, engaging all students in rigorous "math exchanges." The key characteristics of these mathematical conversations is that they are:

  1. short, focused sessions that bring all mathematical minds together
  2. responsive to the needs of the specific group
  3. designed for meaningful, guided reflection

As in reading and writing workshop, students become self-directed and independent while participating in a classroom community of learners. Through the math exchanges, students focus on number sense and the big ideas in math. Teachers mediate talk and thinking as students share problem-solving strategies, discuss "how math works," and move toward more effective and efficient approaches to mathematical understanding.
