## What Is a Number Talk?

Number talks are meant to be short, daily math activities that allow students to have meaningful and highly engaging conversations about math. Simply show students the front of the card and ask the prompts on the back. These exchanges will lead to the development of more accurate, efficient, and flexible strategies for students.
