In guided inquiry, teachers help students use their own language for constructing knowledge by active listening and questioning. While exploring and investigating a problem, teachers guide students to talk through their thinking, which supports development of students' Reasoning, mathematical thinking and problem solving, and Math Communication skills.

Starting at 10:38, watch how this teacher guides her students through a math problem with strategic questions and a think-aloud. Through this effective questioning, students are able to dive more deeply into the math problem individually and with their math group.
