This task was used in an Algebra 2 classroom during the first week of school. The objective was to introduce students to the type of tasks they would be engaged in throughout the course as well as to introduce the Talk Frame, a tool which would be consistently used throughout the year. As we began our journey into the world of mathematical arguments, the Talk Frame tool was a structured way to facilitate classroom discourse. This task provided a great way for students to talk about math and teach them how the Talk Frame would be used to help them share ideas and help them in constructing mathematical arguments and critiquing those of their peers.
