Cozzo, Thérèse; Cozzo, Joseph – Mathematics Teacher, 2019
In the late 1800s and early 1900s, increases in metallurgic technology and better manufacturing methods made naval artillery a more powerful force. Guns could fire more powerful shells that could travel farther and hit a target with much greater accuracy. Torpedoes represented a major threat to even the most powerful of warships, forcing captains…

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…

Henderson, Christie – Mathematics Teacher, 2019
Embedding mathematics in a relatable context has changed the way Christie Henderson's elementary students view the subject. In this article, Henderson discusses how presenting mathematics through a relatable context enables students to visualize the math and make a pictorial representation to aid them in solving it. When relevant and relatable…

Mooney, Eileen B. – Mathematics Teacher, 2018
Top-down implementation of technology is one of the most pervasive phenomena of the last couple of decades in educational history. It is the subject of many books, articles, and blog posts on how to fix schools or why educational technology is not working in the classroom. The idea of providing teachers with technology so they can make students…

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…

Davis, Anna A.; Joswick, Candace – Mathematics Teacher, 2018
The correct use of visual perspective is one of the main reasons that virtual reality environments and realistic works of art look lifelike. Geometric construction techniques used by artists to achieve an accurate perspective effect were developed during the Renaissance. With the rise of computer graphics, translating the geometric ideas of 600…

Eddy, Colleen M.; Pratt, Sarah S.; Green, Cheyenne N. – Mathematics Teacher, 2018
Have you ever considered how technology could facilitate reasoning and sense making of systems of linear inequalities? In this article, the authors share how to use Google® Maps® and Desmos to achieve this and provide students with opportunities to access mathematics as they build a more formalized understanding. Using an inquiry-based approach,…

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…

Riling, Meghan; Dietiker, Leslie – Mathematics Teacher, 2018
Although traditional textbooks may not guide students through explorations or encourage group work, as many standards-based curricula do, virtually all textbooks contain mathematically accurate information and problems that, with adjustment, can be leveraged to support mathematical curiosity, reasoning, and discussion. Teachers who recognize rich…

Graham, Melissa; Lesseig, Kristin – Mathematics Teacher, 2018
Mathematical argumentation is an essential part of the discipline of mathematics and a key indicator of mathematical proficiency. In the process of constructing arguments and critiquing the reasoning of others, students build their understanding of underlying mathematical ideas and engage in critical sense-making activity (Yackel and Hanna 2003).…

Paoletti, Teo; Monahan, Ceire; Vishnubhotla, Madhavi – Mathematics Teacher, 2017
GeoGebra is a free tool that has the potential to change both how and what is taught in mathematics. GeoGebra allows teachers and students to explore various mathematical ideas either through the full applet (https://www.geogebra.org/graphing) or by sharing applets via GeoGebra's Materials site (https://www.geogebra. org/materials/). It has many…

Rapke, Tina – Mathematics Teacher, 2017
Many studies have claimed that traditional testing actually promotes students' use of superficial approaches to learning. When preparing to take tests, students typically memorize and cram rather than understanding the material and gaining new perspectives. This article describes how the author recast traditional tests by having students take a…

Goldenberg, E. Paul; Carter, Cynthia J. – Mathematics Teacher, 2017
A first-year algebra student's curiosity about factorials of negative numbers became a starting point for an extended discovery lesson into territory not usually explored in secondary school mathematics. In this article, the authors, math teachers in Massachusetts, examine how to solve for factorials of negative numbers and discuss how they taught…
