Talking about mathematics is changing lives!


Did you know that talking about maths problems is beneficial for students learning maths? The process improves reasoning skills and helps them understand why a solution works, rather than memorising and rote learning.


Educators stress the distinction between the precise language of mathematics and more informal talk. And, in many classrooms all mathematics can be seen as under the sole control of the teacher. But, research points to the importance of collaborative tasks and talk in learning mathematics. Allowing learners to construct solutions for themselves through talk enriches individuals’ logical thinking and problem solving skills. To help learners experience being mathematicians, meaningful contexts and examples can be provided.
