Summary Engaging children in justifying, forming conjectures and generalising is critical to develop their mathematical reasoning. Previous studies have revealed limited opportunities for primary school children to justify their thinking, form conjectures and generalise in mathematics lessons. Forms of justification of Year3/4 children from three schools in Victoria, Australia will be examined. Evidence from children's written explanations and their verbal explanations captured in video recordings revealed that some children employed sophisticated mathamatical ideas in their justifications. The value of making children's reasoning explicit through written explanations and verbal communications is highlighted.
