Frabasilio, Angela Marie – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2019
Ever try to captivate students with real-world applications only to discover that they live in a very different world? Assigning an Extreme Word Problem activity to students alleviates this dilemma by placing the authorship of a problem squarely into the hands of learners. Rather than trying to be hip and finding word problems that resonate with…

Sela, Hagit; Davis, Nicole; Hulse, Jennifer – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2019
In education, "dialogue protocols," or "protocols," are structured guidelines that were developed to promote meaningful and efficient communication and learning. They are "vehicles for building the skills--and culture-- necessary for collaborative work. The authors share protocols that were found to transform practices…

Stephan, Michelle; Smith, Jennifer – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2019
Engaging in argumentation can lead to an increase in the development of critical-thinking skills, not to mention academic achievement, emotional maturity, and academic and communication skills. If argumentation is such an effective format for developing rigorous academic ideas, how might it be used in discussion-oriented classrooms to engage…

Wessman-Enzinger, Nicole M. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2019
The article uses vignettes to illustrate a small group of of grade 5 students who worked on different types of temperature problems (Wessman-Enzinger and Tobias 2015). The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) recommends including contexts, such as temperature, paired with the introduction to integers in grade 6 and integer…

Murawska, Jaclyn M. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2018
How can a cognitively demanding real-world task such as the Seven Billion People problem promote productive struggle "and" help shape students' mathematical dispositions? Driving home from school one evening, Jaclyn Murawska heard a commentator on the radio announce three statements: (1) experts had determined that the world population…

Cengiz, Nesrin; Rathouz, Margaret – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2018
A framework using contexts, language, and representations can support middle school students' justifications. This article introduces classroom tasks and student work to provide a vision of framework implementation in classroom settings. Although the students in this article are future elementary and middle school teachers, the framework tasks and…

Jensen, Jessica Lynn – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2018
Watching a debate can help people understand multiple points of view. At the conclusion of a debate, a consensus might occur after a deep analysis and discussion of the issues. Most students will participate in a class debate at some point in their schooling, but chances are that debate will not take place in math class. What could there be to…

Duckor, Brent; Holmberg, Carrie; Becker, Joanne Rossi – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2017
Research on teacher professional learning has shown that formative assessment can improve student learning more than most instructional practices. Empirical evidence indicates that thoughtfully implemented formative assessment practices improve students' learning, increase students' scores, and narrow achievement gaps between low-achieving…

de la Cruz, Jessica A.; Garney, Sandra – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2016
It is beneficial for students to discover intuitive strategies, as opposed to the teacher presenting strategies to them. Certain proportional reasoning tasks are more likely to elicit intuitive strategies than other tasks. The strategies that students are apt to use when approaching a task, as well as the likelihood of a student's success or…

Bush, Sarah B.; Albanese, Judith; Karp, Karen S. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2016
Historically, some baby names have been more popular during a specific time span, whereas other names are considered timeless. The Internet article, "How to Tell Someone's Age When All You Know Is Her Name" (Silver and McCann 2014), describes the phenomenon of the rise and fall of name popularity, which served as a catalyst for the…

Cady, Jo Ann; Wells, Pamela J. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2016
The Puppy Love problem asked fifth and sixth grade students to use their prior knowledge of measures of central tendency to determine a data set when given the mean, mode, median, and range of the set. The problem discussed in this article is a task with a higher level of cognitive demand because it requires that students (1) explore and…

Williams-Candek, Maryellen – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2016
How better to begin the study of linear equations in an algebra class than to determine what students already know about the subject? A seventh-grade algebra class in a suburban school undertook a project early in the school year that was completed before they began studying linear relations and functions. The project, which might have been…

Roscoe, Matt B. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2016
Instead of reserving the study of probability and statistics for special fourth-year high school courses, the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) takes a "statistics for all" approach. The standards recommend that students in grades 6-8 learn to summarize and describe data distributions, understand probability, draw…

Smith, Carmen Petrick; Kenlan, Kris – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2016
Students' experiences with statistics and data analysis in middle school are often limited to little more than making and interpreting graphs. Although students may develop fluency in statistical procedures and vocabulary, they frequently lack the skills necessary to apply statistical reasoning in situations other than clear-cut textbook examples.…

Beigie, Darin – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2016
A recent trend in school mathematics has been to launch student inquiry with real-world contexts that capture student interest and intrigue (Meyer 2011, 2012; Kane 2015). Often these starting points harness the immediacy and power of the Internet to provide strong visuals and timely relevance. The goal of the resulting student inquiry is to foster…
