Instructional Math Routines offer teachers a structure to elicit mathematical ideas, facilitate productive discourse, support the Standards of Mathematical Practice, and place an important focus on student voice in the math classroom. In being routinized, teachers are able to save time by not having to explain a new activity structure each time, apply the same structure to various content, and focus classroom discussions on very specific mathematical ideas. For students, these routines are equally valuable. Routines such as Notice and Wonder, Number Talks, and Which One Doesn’t Belong? give all students access to the mathematics, build on prior understandings, and encourage peer-to-peer discussions.
