Working with mathematics teachers to develop whole-class talk

Talk plays an important role in broadening a student’s mathematical vocabulary, bringing increased lucidity to their explanations, and more generally developing and communicating their mathematical understanding. However this raises the question of how teachers can provide opportunities for students to develop what we succinctly label talk in mathematics (TiM). In this seminar we report on the first year of a two-year collaboration between two teams of teachers from local secondary schools and three researchers, who together have sought to address this question.
