What do you See? Math Talks invite students to look at pictures, drawings, or models and freely discuss what they see. “Student Teachers” take turns describing what they see while the “Audience” carefully listens to identify math words. These math words are displayed in a Language of Math box. Through the gradual introduction of math terms, students refine their observations to describe the mathematics of the situation.
