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…

Hubacz, Meghan – Mathematics Teacher, 2018

During the author's eighteen-year tenure as a high school mathematics teacher, there has been one question that she has yet to answer: "Why don't students do homework?" On the basis of research, many factors may lead to a student leaving homework undone. A student may lack the drive to complete work out of school. Or a student may choose…

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,…

DiVito, Arthur N. – Mathematics Teacher, 2018

Mathematics has been taught throughout history without much more than a straightedge, a compass, and an abacus. So there is little question that all the major concepts of mathematics can be delivered without the aid of modern technology. But clearly, just the time-saving aspect of using technology can greatly enhance the art of teaching. In this…

Nabbout-Cheiban, Marie; Fisher, Forest; Edwards, Michael Todd – Mathematics Teacher, 2017

The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics envisions data analysis as a key component of K-grade 12 mathematics instruction with statistics introduced in the early grades. Nonetheless, deficiencies in statistical learning persist throughout elementary school and beyond. Too often, mathematics teachers lack the statistical knowledge for…

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…

Shriver, Janet; Willard, Teri; McDaniel, Mandy – Mathematics Teacher, 2017

In the set of fractal activities described in this article, students will accomplish much more than just creating a fun set of cards that simply resemble an art project. Goals of this activity, designed for an algebra 1 class, are to encourage students to generate data, look for and analyze patterns, and create their own models--all from a set of…

Harper, Suzanne R.; Cox, Dana C. – Mathematics Teacher, 2017

In the authors' attempts to incorporate problem solving into their mathematics courses, they have found that student ambition and creativity are often hampered by feelings of risk, as many students are conditioned to value a produced solution over the actual process of building one. Eliminating risk is neither possible nor desired. The challenge,…

McCaffrey, Tony; Matthews, Percival G. – Mathematics Teacher, 2017

In this article, the authors discuss the potential of the icon-based mathematical games, emoji math and mobile math, to promote student engagement with and understanding of algebra. They describe how these games serve as accessible entry points for algebraic thinking and that, in contrast to traditional symbolic algebra, the use of these…

Case, Catherine; Whitaker, Douglas – Mathematics Teacher, 2016

In the criminal justice system, defendants accused of a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty. Statistical inference in any context is built on an analogous principle: The null hypothesis--often a hypothesis of "no difference" or "no effect"--is presumed true unless there is sufficient evidence against it. In this…

Stephens, Greg – Mathematics Teacher, 2016

Most word processors, including Google Docs™ and Microsoft® Word, include an equation editor. These are great tools for the occasional homework problem or project assignment. Getting the mathematics to display correctly means making decisions about exactly which elements of an expression go where. The feedback is immediate: Students can see…

Özgün-Koca, S. Asli – Mathematics Teacher, 2016

The Common Core State Standards (CCSSI 2010) and NCTM's (2014) "Principles to Actions" agree that "for meaningful learning of mathematics, tools and technology must be indispensable features of the classroom . . . that support students in exploring mathematics as well as in making sense of concepts and procedures and engaging in…

Meagher, Michael S.; Edwards, Michael Todd; Özgün-Koca, S. Asli – Mathematics Teacher, 2016

The article opens with a Geoboard Triangle Quest in this form: "How many noncongruent triangles can be constructed on a 4 × 4 geoboard? How do you know? Justify your answer with significant supporting work." The use of advanced digital technologies as tools for problem solving receives much attention in the methods classes if the…

Danielson, Christopher; Meyer, Dan – Mathematics Teacher, 2016

For many the phrase "teaching math online" evokes a vision of teaching and learning that is not based in physical classrooms. Perhaps teachers and students are even interacting asynchronously. In math classrooms in the United States, the increasing availability of devices (e.g. laptops, Chromebooks™, smartphones, and tablets) and…

Johnson, Heather Lynn; Hornbein, Peter; Bryson, Dana – Mathematics Teacher, 2016

Fully online courses can provide teachers fresh opportunities to expand their mathematical conceptions and infuse technology into their classroom teaching. In this article, the authors share the experience of two classroom teachers (Hornbein and Bryson) who participated in a fully online mathematics education course--Expanding Conceptions of…
