back talk: The marriage of place and value


April 2013, Volume 19, Issue 8, Page 528

Students say some amazing things. Back Talk highlights the learning of one or two students and their approach to solving a math problem. Each article includes the prompt used to initiate the discussion, a portion of dialogue, student work samples (when applicable), and teacher insights into the mathematical thinking of students. This article investigates a student’s understanding of the base-ten number system and how she uses her conceptions of place value to learn about the base-two number system.
