    I think they’re worth it. I taught Gr. 7 this past year, and we did 5 – 10 minute number talks at the beginning of class, especially during our learning around numeracy outcomes, but at least three times a week.  It was worth it. I used Humphreys and Parker’s (2015) book Making Number Talks Matter as a guide.  They even address “Arithmetic in High School?” p. 36.  I think you’d find this book really helpful. 🙂
