Selecting and Sequencing Student Solutions

Facilitating productive mathematics discussions in the classroom

Selecting and Sequencing Student Solutions whitepaper.

When students share, discuss, and compare strategies, teachers have greater insight into students' thinking. Research shows there are best practices that can be used to create a classroom environment that fosters rich classroom discussions.

To help teachers plan for classroom conversations and anticipate possible solutions, it is important to observe student strategies in the classroom.

This whitepaper examines the best practices that are viewed as critical components of a well-designed plan to make purposeful and thoughtful decisions that strengthen students' understanding of robust mathematics.
