Embolden Your Inner Mathematician Session 2
Subitizing, Number Talks, and Choral Counting:
#NCTMP2A: Elicit and use evidence of student thinking
Course Goals:
At the end of the semester, participants should be able to say:
 I can exercise mathematical flexibility to show what I know in more than one way.
 I can make sense of mathematical tasks and persevere in solving them.
 I can work within NCTM’s Eight Mathematical Teaching Practices for strengthening the teaching and learning of mathematics.
Elicit and use evidence of student thinking.
Effective teaching of mathematics uses evidence of student thinking to assess progress toward mathematical understanding and to adjust instruction continually in ways that support and extend learning.

Session Goals:
At the end of this session, participants should be able to say:
 I can make sense of tasks and persevere in solving them.
 I can elicit and use evidence of student thinking.
 I can construct a viable argument and critique the reasoning of others.
 Show your thinking so a reader understands without asking your questions.
