Abstract/Description:

Once students share their ideas, creating meaningful mathematics discourse requires that teachers decide which ideas are worth pursuing and how to capitalize on those ideas. We share a framework for determining which student ideas have significant potential to support mathematics learning and discuss how teachers might productively use those ideas.
