Analysis of data related to questioning indicated that participants significantly increased their abilities to identify and create questions that promote understanding of mathematics, particularly questions that prompt students to explore mathematical ideas and connections. Asking this type of question has been linked to increased student achievement. However, most teachers rarely, if ever, ask this type of question.They have not, for the most part, learned mathematics by publicly discussing, explaining, and justifying their thinking and ... In their observation and analysis of 350 lessons, they divided lesson quality into 5 levels, ranked from 1 through 5.
