I have actually found the opposite to be true in my class. I find the the higher end students have trouble with math talks because they are so used to being right and have a hard time explaining their thinking or get frustrated when asked to do so. I agree with Mary’s suggestions and have used them as well. They help to create a stress free environment because there is not one right answer, or one way to get to the answer. It empowers kids that they can be correct even if they answer differently than their peers.
