DeJarnette, Anna F.; Rosado Lausell, Sahid L.; González, Gloriana – Mathematics Teacher, 2015
How can geometry teachers design great tasks that allow students to make connections among interrelated concepts and expand their geometric reasoning skills? Many curricular materials provide problems for students to apply a single geometric concept. However, these problems do not always promote reasoning opportunities for students, because…

Viro, Julia – Mathematics Teacher, 2014
Constructing viable arguments and reasoning abstractly is an essential part of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSI 2010). This article discusses the scenarios in which a mathematical task is impossible to accomplish, as well as how to approach impossible scenarios in the classroom. The concept of proof is introduced as the…

What does problem-based instruction do for students and teachers? The open-ended geometry problem presented in this article, along with examples of students' work on the problem, illustrates how problem-based instruction can help students develop their mathematical proficiency. Recent studies have shown that students who experience problem-based…

The kinematics teaching strategy is a teaching method that stimulates kinesthetic intelligence and thus offers students an unconventional approach for exploring mathematical ideas through movement. This article describes how to use the kinesthetic approach to introduce radian measure. The article includes detailed descriptions of easy-to-use…
