This vital part of mathematics teaching, often neglected, is explored here with suggestions ranging from the imaginative--could an elephant walk through the door of the classroom?--to the practical--estimate the schools floor area. Starting with strategies for planning this work, the book then goes on to give ideas for extending and evaluating discussions. One section describes talking points in full with suggested questions, lists of vocabulary to introduce, aims, and follow-up. The other sections contain many more ideas described in brief, and arranged in order of difficulty.
