When students can demonstrate understanding, they are better able to transfer and apply their knowledge. In this episode of our Fresh Ideas for Teaching podcast, we asked Marian Small, an internationally renowned mathematics educator, author, and professional learning consultant, “What Does Math Understanding Look Like?” Get ready to take notes as Dr. Small shares practical tips, questioning techniques, and strategies to promote mathematical reasoning and uncover true student understanding in the K-12 math classroom.
