Several weeks ago, I posted Cube Conversations, which is a set of 80 animated lessons designed to promote visually rich math discourse.  You can learn more about – and download – all 80 of the Cube Conversations lessons here.

Today, I’m adding a new – and very important – element to the series, which is a set of 80 downloadable, printable pages.  These pages completely match the animated Cube Conversations lessons.

You’ll see that these pages quickly multiply discourse opportunities for students.

In addition, I’m sharing four instructional strategies.

Watch the video and download the pages in the format that works best for you.  Then let your students amaze you with their insights!

    Hi Steve, many thanks for all your resources that you make available so easily on your website. I’ve made use of your splat’s many times and discussions and maths talk is great with my students (aged from 7 through to 9). I’m also exploring your other resources, est’s, cubes, opport.’s, massive, etc and I was downloading your conversation pdf’s. set 50 – is a blank page only. all the rest were fine, so a link isn’t working here. I help run maths at our school and I will be doing a small push for using your resources to the other teachers on Monday as I think this will give them lots of opportunities to increase maths talk amongst their students, even the little guys. Splat is good for this with so many examples on single digit numbers and then those to 20 and later double and halving, as well as times table facts. Great stuff. The visual side of things work well on our whiteboards too. Thanks again for so much being shared by you and I look forward to making use of the template for dot arrays. Regards Murray from Kaponga School, Taranaki, New Zealand.

    Hi Steve, I am wondering if you have any splat lessons for grade 2 around doubles, doubles plus one, friends of 10, etc.
    I love your splat lessons! My student’s love them too!

      Hi, Carrie. I actually wrote some splat slides with doubling specifically in mind and embedded them in the early splat levels of 20 Days of Number Sense and Rich Math Talk (K-12). You’ll find at least one within each set. Here is the link: https://stevewyborney.com/?p=1891

    Hi Steve,

    I’m a math coach in Davis, California and I’ve been sharing your AMAZING materials with teachers in my district for the past 2 years. We “play” Splat, we look at Area Tiling qustions, we have Cube Conversations, we explore the Interactive Hundred Chart, etc.

    I want to communicate my deep, deep appreciation for the work that you do, and the gift of offering your INCREDIBLE materials for free. You are a gem. I hope you continue to create and share your materials, and I’m sorry it’s taken this long for me to let you know how much we love them.

    As a coach I am always trying to find ways to connect our math learning to visual representations and your materials really help us do that in an engaging, creative, analytical and novel way.

    I also really appreciate how you strive to develop materials that can be used up and down the grades.

    Finally, I want to encourage you to keep looking for ways for teachers to easily download large sets of your materials so we don’t have to download small sets at a time. I really appreciate it when you’ve done that. Some people might like the smaller collections (more grade-specific), but as a coach I like grabbing things in one swoop.

    Best wishes, and thank you!!!

      Hi Dave,

      I deeply appreciate your note. Thank you for taking the time to express all of this. I have tried several variations of how to make the files downloadable in bundles so that they can get into the hands of educators more easily. I appreciate hearing that this is helpful and will keep finding more ways to do so. Thank you again for such an encouraging note!
