Quinn, Anne; Larson, Karen – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
Consistent with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSI 2010), the authors write that they have asked students to do statistics projects with real data. To obtain real data, their students use the free Web-based app, Census at School, created by the American Statistical Association (ASA) to help promote civic awareness among school…

Aaberg, Shelby; Vitosh, Jason; Smith, Wendy – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
A classic TV commercial once asked, "How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop?" The narrator claims, "The world may never know" (Tootsie Roll 2012), but an Internet search returns a multitude of answers, some of which include rigorous systematic approaches by academics to address the…

Klein, Valerie; Fukawa-Connelly, Timothy; Silverman, Jason – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
Teachers' focus on student thinking--and moving beyond superficial "right or wrong" analysis--is essential to effective teaching (Grossman and McDonald 2008; NCTM 2000; Son and Sinclair 2010). Interpreting and evaluating student thinking and providing high-quality feedback are seen as high-leverage practices and are "likely to lead…

Liu, Yating; Enderson, Mary C. – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
A mysterious conflict of solutions emerged when a group of tenth- and eleventh-grade students were studying a seemingly ordinary problem on combination and probability. By investigating the mysterious "conflicts" caused by multiple randomization procedures, students will gain a deeper understanding of what it means to perform a task…

Bossé, Michael J.; Lynch-Davis, Kathleen; Adu-Gyamfi, Kwaku; Chandler, Kayla – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
Assessment and instruction are interwoven in mathematically rich formative assessment tasks, so employing these tasks in the classrooms is an exciting and time-efficient opportunity. To provide a window into how these tasks work in the classroom, this article analyzes summaries of student work on such a task and considers several students'…

Gurl, Theresa J.; Fox, Ryan; Dabovic, Nikolina; Leavitt, Arielle Eager – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
The implementation of the Common Core's Standards for Mathematical Practice can pose a challenge to all teachers of mathematics but especially to preservice teachers. These standards require teaching in a way that often differs from what preservice teachers have experienced as learners. Standard 1--"Make sense of problems and persevere in…

Sole, Marla A. – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
Every day, students collect, organize, and analyze data to make decisions. In this data-driven world, people need to assess how much trust they can place in summary statistics. The results of every survey and the safety of every drug that undergoes a clinical trial depend on the correct application of appropriate statistics. Recognizing the…

Marynowski, Richelle – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
Many students in the United States, Canada, and around the world are required to take externally developed examinations. In many cases, these examinations are considered high stakes, and thus teachers spend time in class ensuring that their students are ready for the tests. After speaking with secondary math teachers about their experiences, the…

Huhn, Craig – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
When the author was first charged with getting a group of students to understand the correlation coefficient, he did not anticipate the topic would challenge his own understanding, let alone cause him to eventually question the very nature of mathematics itself. On the surface, the idea seemed straightforward, one that millions of students across…

Caglayan, Günhan – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
A Steiner chain is defined as the sequence of n circles that are all tangent to two given non-intersecting circles. A closed chain, in particular, is one in which every circle in the sequence is tangent to the previous and next circles of the chain. In a closed Steiner chain the first and the "n"th circles of the chain are also tangent…

Urbina-Lilback, Ruth N. – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
The statistics about community college developmental math level and completion rates can seem disheartening, especially for those who work with these students day-to-day and know their life stories. When it comes to teaching her students, the author chooses not to focus on the statistics. Instead, she pays attention to their varied career goals…

Stevens, Alexis; Stevens, John – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
How is the president of the United States elected? Why is this the method used? Is this the best and most efficient way of electing the president of the United States? Questions such as these are well suited for a mathematics discussion that promotes numeracy, because, "notwithstanding the immense value of numeracy for education and vocation,…
