Ghosh, Jonaki B. – Mathematics Teacher, 2018

The Tower of Hanoi is an old, popular, and engaging puzzle. It is an exceptional puzzle too considering how effective it can be in engendering multiple valuable outcomes when used as a tool for learning. One of the fundamental goals of mathematics teacher preparation is to enable the prospective teacher to develop mathematical habits of mind and…

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).…

Rebholz, Joachim A. – Mathematics Teacher, 2017

Graphing functions is an important topic in algebra and precalculus high school courses. The functions that are usually discussed include polynomials, rational, exponential, and trigonometric functions along with their inverses. These functions can be used to teach different aspects of function theory: domain, range, monotonicity, inverse…

Huang, Rongjin; Prince, Kyle M.; Schmidt, Teresa – Mathematics Teacher, 2014

The importance of developing reasoning and justification has been highlighted in "Principles and Standards for School Mathematics" (NCTM 2000). The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSI 2010) further reiterates the importance of reasoning and proof in several standards for mathematical practice. Students of all grades are…

Raje, Sonali; Krach, Michael; Kaplan, Gail – Mathematics Teacher, 2013

Concepts in mathematics are often universally applicable to other fields. A critical aspect for success in high school or college is the ability to transfer content knowledge from one discipline to another. This is especially true for material learned in the sciences and mathematics. Several studies have suggested that strong mathematical skills…

Edwards, Thomas G.; Chelst, Kenneth R. – Mathematics Teacher, 2007

When studying mathematics, students often ask the age-old question, "When will I ever use this in my future?" The activities described in this article demonstrate for students a process that brings the power of mathematical reasoning to bear on a difficult decision involving multiple criteria that is sure to resonate with the interests of many of…
