We recently sat down with Jessica Shumway to ask her about her new book, Number Sense Routines.
In the first part of our interview with Jessica, she defines number sense, talks about why it’s difficult to assess it, and how a lack of number sense can hinder students in reaching their potential in math. In the second part, Jessica explains how the routines in her book help teachers learn about students’ mathematical thinking over time, and how math talk with peers can encourage reluctant math learners.
