Good Questions for Math Teaching
- What is a good question?
- How do I create a good question?
- How might I use a good question in my mathematics classroom?
Questions cover financial literacy; counting and place value; decimals; operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division); fractions (fraction models, comparing fractions, adding and subtracting fractions); geometry (two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes); data analysis and probability, and measurement (weight, volume, area, time, length and perimeter).
