Mathematically proficient students start by explaining to themselves the meaning of a problem and looking for entry points to its solution. They analyze givens, constraints, relationships, and goals. They make conjectures about the form and meaning of the solution and plan a solution pathway rather than simply jumping into a solution attempt. They consider analogous problems, and try special cases and simpler forms of the original problem in order to gain insight into its solution. They monitor and evaluate their progress and change course if necessary. Older students might, depending on the context of the problem, transform algebraic expressions or change the viewing window on their graphing calculator to get the information they need. Mathematically proficient students can explain correspondences between equations, verbal descriptions, tables, and graphs or draw diagrams of important features and relationships, graph data, and search for regularity or trends. Younger students might rely on using concrete objects or pictures to help conceptualize and solve a problem. Mathematically proficient students check their answers to problems using a different method, and they continually ask themselves, \"Does this make sense?\" They can understand the approaches of others to solving complex problems and identify correspondences between different approaches.

A "Notice and Wonder" routine encourages students to make meaning of a context or image in a way that makes sense to them.

## Discussion and Supporting Materials

Thank you for sharing this routine! I love that students are practicing to be flexible thinkers by considering a number of different values that could fit into the problem. Would you ever stop to redirect the students to pose wonderings that are more on the mathematical side? For example a student asked about the number of small groups, versus a question that asks why each student must bring his/her own set. Once students become familiar with this particular routine, would you encourage them more to think of mathematical questions for the wonderings?
