Frabasilio, Angela Marie – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2019
Ever try to captivate students with real-world applications only to discover that they live in a very different world? Assigning an Extreme Word Problem activity to students alleviates this dilemma by placing the authorship of a problem squarely into the hands of learners. Rather than trying to be hip and finding word problems that resonate with…

Perry, Anthony; Estabrooks, Leigh – Science Teacher, 2019
The "Next Generation Science Standards" ("NGSS") emphasize integrating engineering design into the science classroom (NGSS Lead States 2013). Inventing is an authentic and relevant classroom approach, regardless of content area, located at one end of a design continuum opposite from routine problem solving. Invention, at the…

Levinson, Meira, Ed.; Fay, Jacob, Ed. – Harvard Education Press, 2019
Teaching in a democracy is challenging and filled with dilemmas that have no easy answers. For example, how do educators meet their responsibilities of teaching civic norms and dispositions while remaining nonpartisan? "Democratic Discord in Schools" features eight normative cases of complex dilemmas drawn from real events designed to…

Stegall, Joanna B.; Malloy, Jacquelynn A. – Mathematics Teacher, 2019
The ties between literacy and numeracy exist in the development of vocabulary and language for understanding mathematical concepts. Research indicates that explicit instruction in mathematics vocabulary supports success with mathematics problem solving (Biemiller 2009; Pierce and Fontaine 2009; Rubenstein and Thompson 2002) for native…

Lynch, Sararose D.; Hunt, Jessica H.; Lewis, Katherine E. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2018
This article demonstrates how to consider differentiating instruction for diverse learners while maintaining the cognitive demand of a mathematics task. The authors present scenarios involving hypothetical cases of students in inclusive classrooms who engaged in productive struggle within the differentiated task. The authors specifically focus on…

Lischka, Alyson E.; Gerstenschlager, Natasha E.; Stephens, D. Christopher; Strayer, Jeremy F.; Barlow, Angela T. – Mathematics Teacher, 2018
Mistakes can be a source of frustration for teachers and students in mathematics classrooms because they reveal potential misunderstandings or a lack of learning. However, increasing evidence shows that making mistakes creates productive pathways for learning new ideas and building new concepts (Boaler 2016; Borasi 1996). Learning through…

Clinch, Adam – Mathematics Teacher, 2018
One of the foundational topics in first-year algebra concerns the concept of factoring. This article discusses an alternative strategy for factoring quadratics of the form ax[superscript 2] + bx + c, known as "factoring for roots." This strategy enables students to extend the knowledge they used when the leading coefficient was 1 and…

Cloft, Kristal – Mathematics Teacher, 2018
Many ways exist to engage students without detracting from the mathematics. Certainly some are high-tech options, such as video games, online trivia sites, and PowerPoint® presentations that follow the same model as Jeopardy; but sometimes low-tech options can be just as powerful. One exciting way to connect with students is by incorporating…
