Notice and Wonder™
Annie Fetter‘s ignite talk about Notice and Wonder is a great starting point:
Notice and Wonder Blogs from the Math Forum at NCTM team, especially Max Ray-Riek, Annie Fetter, and Suzanne Alejandre:
- Noticing and Wondering in Elementary School
- Noticing and Wondering in Middle School
- Noticing and Wondering in High School
- Using Problems of the Week–Getting Started
- Problem Solving: It Has to Begin with Noticing and Wondering
- Free Scenarios for Notice and Wonder
- Sense-Making? Aren’t We Already Doing That in Literacy?
- Christopher Danielson‘s What did you learn?
- Making Sense a blogpost of mine about students’ thinking about word problems

When Students’ Questions Drive Teaching and Learning: “Are Shapes Math?”
- Van Hieles’ Theory of Geometric Thought
- An article from Teaching Children Mathematics about teaching geometry with Van Hieles’ model.
- Which One Doesn’t Belong? is an outstanding pair of books (student book and teacher’s guide) from Christopher Danielson that will help you teach geometry in a meaningful, question-driven way. Highly recommended.
A beautiful blogpost from @TAnnalet about 3rd-grade students’ questions about infinity: “Like Someone Walking Through Time Without Noticing He Is.”
