How Did You Solve That? offers a glimpse into two classrooms (70 minutes of classroom footage) as teachers Kassia Omohundro Wedekind, author of the popular book "Math Exchanges" and Rachel Knieling facilitate small-group math meetings with their kindergarten and second-grade students. See what small-group math exchanges look like, sound like, and feel like, and hear from Kassia and Rachel as they plan, teach, and reflect on their math conferences.

How Did You Solve That? addresses issues such as the following:

  • Establishing a strong math workshop in which small-group math exchanges are central
  • Assessing students' mathematical understandings
  • Grouping students for math exchanges
  • Planning effectively and efficiently for math exchanges
  • Crafting teacher language that supports (but doesn't take over!) student thinking
  • Encouraging student talk
  • Choosing problems and numbers
  • Knowing what to do when math exchanges take an unexpected turn

In a special feature, Kassia answers teachers' most commonly asked questions about guiding young mathematicians in small groups - from how to get started to thinking about future goals for students. Join her in her classroom as she skillfully guides young learners to make sense of problems and persevere until they've found a solution.
