Two New Questions
Math is filled with many different questions. This short video shows the power of two relatively new questions: What do you notice? and What do you wonder? As a teacher leader in a Maryland public school district, I shared the power of these questions with our new educators, showing how open ended questions without one specific answer can be as, or often more, powerful than traditional questions that have only one response. I also showed the power of open ended questions to teachers in Mexico on a recent Fulbright exchange, where teachers often taught in a very traditional manner. Showing educators the power of open ended questions helps open the conversation about mathematics.
