100 Questions to Promote Mathematical Discourse

Parents often ask questions about the new approach to math instruction in Common Core curriculum. 

Here is a sample of the questions that teachers are asking their students during math class!Questions that promote Mathematical Discourse, What Strategy did you use? Could you share your method with the class? Is this a reasonable answer?  How did you reach that conclusion?  What is another way you could solve this problem? What do you need to do next?
Which words were most important?  Why? Do you see a pattern?  How did you think about the problem?   Have you ever solved a problem like this before?  What skills did you use?  Is there a real life situation where this could be used?Would another method work better?  How would you explain what you know right now?  What were the mathematical ideas in this problem?
