*Number Talk:*

If there are 3 groups of 26 students in the sixth

grade, how many students are there total?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Quick Tips for Number Talks:

__1st__: Let students solve.

__2nd__: Ask volunteers to simply share answers first; decide on the correct answer.

__3rd__: Lead a discussion of two or three students' solution strategies. Alternatively, have all students share their solution strategies on an index card, collect, and show off a few students' solution strategies (to show ways that work and misconceptions).
