Unit Chats

Unit Chats are one of the great openers developed in the last few years. The emphasis is on different units within the image. Students can answer “how many” with respect to the different options of units presented by the picture, and also relate the units to each other to build the framework for a deeper understanding of multiplication, division, and fractions.

Truly a knockout opener.

    This is the first time I discovered Unitchat. I am in love with Number Talks and unitchats seem wonderful continuation of them, getting deeper on a different level, making you think about everyday things with totally mathematical mindset. Thank you for the links and for the samples.

    Love these. I had my students make their own unit talks and they had a great time making and sharing them with their classmates. Thank you for sharing these.
