Insist students to ask questions
Questioning is the first step to discovery. Asking questions helps a human being to develop their understanding of that particular subject.

So insist your students ask more questions related to math problems even if the questions are silly. Don’t make them realize that their questions are not important because once they are ashamed to ask questions then it will become their habit to not ask questions.
Let your students find out the solution instead of giving them answers
Curiosity is the key. It is important to make mistakes to learn more and more about the topic. So it’s always better to be foolish in front of the teacher then to regret later. It’s not only helping a student to develop their problem-solving skills, but they also start questioning and taking an active part in the classroom.
Praise your Students
Praising someone gives them the motivation to do more. At the age of a student, they always need appreciation for their effort to learn more and more. Praise your students whenever they are asking questions out of curiosity and make them realize the importance of questioning. As a teacher, you should always motivate your students to understand that making mistakes is not something made them a loser, but not correcting or ignoring those mistakes can create a lifetime question mark to their existing knowledge.
