Students' Thinking and the Depth of the Mathematics Curriculum
Kent, Laura B.
Journal of Education and Learning, v3 n4 p90-95 2014
This article explores the impact of students' thinking centered professional development on mathematics teaching and learning. Purposeful pedagogy and problem posing are examined as mechanisms by which teachers can potentially deepen students' understanding of mathematics. A classroom example comparing student generated strategies versus algorithmic approaches also highlights the benefits of instructional approaches that emphasize students' understanding of mathematics.
