Developing Mathematical Thinking Habits Through Mathematical Practices in Kindergarten Through Grade 5

In a world of technology, with lightning-fast processing and vast memory capacity, what mathematical abilities are going to prepare students to be educated, productive, and employable members of society? The answer is that students must be prepared not only with the knowledge of important mathematical concepts and skills, but also with experiences in which they learn how to think about and use that knowledge in order to investigate, evaluate, make decisions, and justify choices.  Mathematical thinking habits develop over time as students consider questions that require them to analyze, justify, and revisit mathematical representations and problem-solving processes. Join author Janie Schielack as she provides us with guidelines for modeling questions that students can learn to ask themselves in order to engage in the mathematical practices that lead to long-term mathematical thinking habits.
