Armstrong, Michelle Hine; Piercey, Victor I.; Greene-Hunley, Stephanie – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2015
This article describes two different projects using the stock market as a context for learning. For both projects, students "bought" shares in individual companies, tracked stock prices for a period of time, and then "sold" their shares at a gain or loss. The projects are adaptable for students in late elementary school through…

Drake, Corey; Land, Tonia J.; Bartell, Tonya Gau; Aguirre, Julia M.; Foote, Mary Q.; McDuffie, Amy Roth; Turner, Erin E. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2015
Many teachers experience the tension between using published curriculum materials and teaching in ways that are responsive to children. Teachers are often expected to use a particular mathematics curriculum series, but they still want to be able to build on and connect to children's multiple mathematical knowledge bases (MMKB).…

Christensen, Carrie Ann – Teaching Artist Journal, 2015
The classroom offers a unique and effective venue for community engagement and an opportunity for teaching artists to dive into a topic on both practical and theoretical levels, resulting in well-informed input. That well-informed input is then translated into thoughtful action. It is exciting to engage students early on in shaping their community…

Swanson, Patricia E. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2015
Elementary school mathematics is increasingly recognized for its crucial role in developing the foundational skills and understandings for algebra. In this article, the author uses a lesson to introduce the concept of "rates"--comparing two different types and units of measure--and how to graph them. Described is the lesson and shared…

Rule, Audrey C.; Tallakson, Denise A.; Glascock, Alex L.; Chao, Astoria – Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideas, 2015
This article describes an arts- and spatial thinking skill--integrated inquiry project applied to life science concepts from the Next Generation Science Standards for fourth grade students that focuses on two unifying or crosscutting themes: (1) structure (or "form") and function and (2) use of models. Students made observations and…

Smith, Carmen Petrick; King, Barbara; González, Diana – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2015
There is a growing need for STEAM-based (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) knowledge and skills across a wide range of professions (Brazell 2013). Yet students often fail to see the usefulness of mathematics beyond the classroom (Kloosterman, Raymond, and Emenaker 1996), and they do not regularly make connections between…

Brown, Katrina; Brown, Todd; Hardy, Wendy – Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideas, 2015
In this fourth and fifth grade activity, students become comfortable with the concept that light-years are a measure of distance, not time, and discover how we are looking back in time when we look at stars. Since the enormous distances in space can make astronomical studies even more confusing, students explore the meaning of a light-year by…

Erk, Kendra; Lumkes, John; Shambach, Jill; Braile, Larry; Brickler, Anne; Matthys, Anna – Science and Children, 2015
Acoustical engineers use their knowledge of sound to design quiet environments (e.g., classrooms and libraries) as well as to design environments that are supposed to be loud (e.g., concert halls and football stadiums). They also design sound barriers, such as the walls along busy roadways that decrease the traffic noise heard by people in…
