Within the last couple of weeks, I have been participating in a book study hosted by Donna of Math Coach’s Corner. We have been reading and discussing Teaching Numeracy 9 Critical Habits to Ignite Mathematical Thinking by Margie Pearse & K. M. Walton.  The book is a really great one in that it provides researched based approaches and practical application of 9 critical math habits.

Habit 6, Questioning for Understanding really stood out to me.  In this section the author provided several questions that were categorized into 3 areas: bridge questions, during lesson questions and debrief questions.  I was so impressed with the questions that I wanted to create a freebie to help teachers.  With the permission of Margie Pearson (one of the authors) I was able to create this great FREEBIE.

Therefore I present to you…….. Math Questions for Understanding.
