It is so wonderful to be able to step back and listen to my math classroom and hear all of the "math talk." Students become very passionate about their method of solving a problem a specific way. The students are defending their method and are proving why their method works. It is GREAT to hear these conversations on a daily basis. It is gratifying to hear students who used to struggle with math say, "Missy, that was easy…I can't believe I understand (the math). I've never been good at math."
