Buchheister, Kelley; Jackson, Christa; Taylor, Cynthia E. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2019
With an increased focus on using social discourse to enhance students' mathematical thinking and reasoning (NCTM 2014, Staples and King 2017), teachers are looking for discussion strategies that encourage middlelevel students to make sense of mathematical concepts. However, structuring these valuable discussions is complex. Teachers must carefully…

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…

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…

Shin, Dongjo; Smith, Ryan C.; Kim, Somin – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2018
Use a framework to evaluate a tool: Is it mathematically sound? Does it offer opportunities for student engagement with little distraction? Will it afford students the chance to develop their own ideas? This article provides a framework that teachers can use to evaluate technological tools. The authors evaluate two examples that are designed to…
