Geist, Melissa; Anthony, Holly; Majors, Twanelle – Mathematics Teacher, 2018

Some students tend to lose their love for mathematics as their educational journeys continue. Research has documented the various culprits contributing to this phenomenon, but seldom are solutions offered that can be addressed in one's own classroom. In this article, the authors described their attempt to kindle students' passion for mathematics…

Hurdle, Zach; Warshauer, Max; White, Alex – Mathematics Teacher, 2016

The desire to persuade students to avoid strictly memorizing formulas is a recurring theme throughout discussions of curriculum and problem solving. In combinatorics, a branch of discrete mathematics, problems can be easy to write--identify a few categories, add a few restrictions, specify an outcome--yet extremely challenging to solve. A lesson…

Gedeborg, Samuel – Mathematics Teacher, 2016

One of the major benefits of the face-to-face teaching environment is that social interaction opportunities are a natural part of the course: Learners meet in the same room for the same allotted period of time each week. This social opportunity is not organic to online courses; therefore, to have this social interaction as a part of online classes…

Ponce, Gregorio A.; Tuba, Imre – Mathematics Teacher, 2015

New strategies can ignite teachers' imagination to create new lessons or adapt lessons created by others. In this article, the authors present the experience of an algebra teacher and his students solving linear and literal equations and explain how the use of ideas found in past NCTM journals helped bring this lesson to life. The…

Annin, Scott A.; Lai, Kevin S. – Mathematics Teacher, 2010

Mathematics teachers are often asked, "What is the most difficult topic for you to teach?" Their answer is teaching students to count. The concepts can be challenging and slippery to apply in problems. Many times, no rigid procedures or formulas can be used to solve the problems directly, and students simply do not know where or how to approach…

Greenwood, Jay – Mathematics Teacher, 1984

Math anxiety affects both sexes, and is not the cause of imbalance in mathematical professions. Attempts to broaden perceptions of mathematics deal only with the symptoms of math anxiety. The principal cause is the methodology used to teach mathematics. Problem-solving processes must be employed. (MNS)

Jackson, Carol D.; Leffingwell, R. Jon – Mathematics Teacher, 1999

Investigates the types of instructor behavior that created or exacerbated mathematics anxiety in students. Determines the grade level at which mathematics anxiety first occurred in these students. Concludes that several factors can cause mathematics anxiety, instructor behavior being one of them. (ASK)

Artzt, Alice F. – Mathematics Teacher, 1999

In order for teachers to use cooperative-learning strategies effectively, they must become sensitized to the many complexities of the technique. Explains how a mathematics teacher-education class can engage pre-service and in-service teachers in a cooperative-learning activity that can be used both as a model and as a subject for reflection and…
