This paper revisits the art of questioning in mathematics classrooms through a comparative analysis of three mathematical whole-class discussions using number strings. Data was collected from two expert teachers, and one teacher engaged in professional development learning to use number strings. The teachers’ questions were analysed to find out what constitutes a mathematically fruitful questioning practice. Findings show that learning about affordances of different question types is a good start, but needs to be accompanied by developing listening skills and changing one’s belief about the aim of questions in the mathematics classroom.
