Number Talks are a short guided educational method where students engage in meaningful conversations centered around interesting mathematical or numerical problems that are aimed at building number sense and flexibility. Participation in number talks can improve our students’ numerical reasoning, confidence, and their abilities in the collection, inception, and termination of information-processing functions such as encoding, storing, and retrieval from the long-term memory system. This is helpful to create fully inclusive classrooms since there are many common types of learning or emotional disabilities that affect a student’s working memory.
