Freeburn, Ben; Arbaugh, Fran – Mathematics Teacher, 2017
"Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All" (NCTM 2014, p. 10) contains eight research-informed teaching practices that have been shown to support students' mathematical thinking and learning. Two teaching practices highlighted herein are "to elicit and use evidence of students' thinking" and "support…

McDowell, Eric L. – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
By the time they reach middle school, all students have been taught to add fractions. However, not all have "learned" to add fractions. The common mistake in adding fractions is to report that a/b + c/d is equal to (a + c)/(b + d). It is certainly necessary to correct this mistake when a student makes it. However, this occasion also…

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…

Manizade, Agida G.; Mason, Marguerite M. – Mathematics Teacher, 2014
A mathematics classroom that reflects the vision of NCTM's "Principles and Standards for School Mathematics" will have the teacher posing problems, asking questions that build on students' thinking, and encouraging students to explore different solutions. In teaching about area, it is not sufficient to give students the…

Ellis, Mark W.; Bryson, Janet L. – Mathematics Teacher, 2011
The absolute value learning objective in high school mathematics requires students to solve far more complex absolute value equations and inequalities. When absolute value problems become more complex, students often do not have sufficient conceptual understanding to make any sense of what is happening mathematically. The authors suggest that the…

Kotsopoulos, Donna – Mathematics Teacher, 2008
This article introduces readers to various examples of discourse analysis in mathematics education. Highlighted is interactional sociolinguistics, used in a present study to investigate peer discourse in a middle-school setting. Key findings from this study include the benefits of video modeling as a mechanism for fostering inclusive peer group…
