Emphasizing Standards with Classroom Activity Extensions
Coffland, David A.
Teaching Children Mathematics, v15 n5 p304-308 Dec 2008
This article describes the extension of a simple activity into an exploration of multiple NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) Standards. It includes the solution process undertaken by a combination fifth-sixth-grade class. In teaching students to attain Standards, all classroom activities should purposefully address one or more Standards. With textbooks, supplemental resource books, and especially the development of the Internet, activities abound. Not all activities are fully developed or Standards-ready, but a teacher can extend almost any activity to become a Standards-based lesson. (Contains 4 tables and 2 figures.)
