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…

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…

Rodgers, Wendy J.; Weiss, Margaret P. – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2019

Nearly 63% of students with disabilities are included in general education classrooms for some part of their day, and at the high school level, 79% participate in state reading and math assessments (U.S. Department of Education, 2016). Middle and high school classes pose particular challenges because, unlike elementary classrooms, they are usually…

Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth; Shah, Niral – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2019

This article explores teaching practices described in NCTM's [National Council of Teachers of Mathematics'] "Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All." Investigating and mitigating implicit bias in questions are discussed in this article, which is another installment in the series.

Bush, Sarah B. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2019

In April 2018, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) released "Catalyzing Change in High School Mathematics: Initiating Critical Conversations," a long-needed and well-articulated position for transforming the core purposes, structures, instructional practices, essential mathematics concepts, and organization of high…

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…

Falco, Lia D. – Middle School Journal, 2019

Findings from recent studies suggest that students' pathways into mathematics-related careers begin as early as middle school when students are forming lasting self-perceptions of their academic abilities. Middle school is also a time when students begin making choices about future coursework in math, science, and technology that will have…

Ahmadpour, Fatemeh; Reid, David; Reza Fadaee, Mohammad – Mathematical Thinking and Learning: An International Journal, 2019

We present a model for describing the growth of students' understandings when reading a proof. The model is composed of two main paths. One is focused on becoming aware of the deductive structure of the proof, in other words, understanding the proof at a semantic level. Generalization, abstraction, and formalization are the most important…

Carter, Kate – Mid-Western Educational Researcher, 2019

Teaching middle school mathematics, I have found that classroom dynamics have a profound impact on the quality of mathematical discussion. Wanting to improve classroom discussion in order to better facilitate both small-group and student-driven learning, I started the school year by randomly grouping students every week for their small groups. I…

Widodo, Sri Adi; Wahyudin – Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, 2018

One of the factors that determine the success of mathematics learning is the learning media used. Learning media can help students to create mathematical abstract mathematics that is abstract. In addition to media, meaningful learning is a learning that is adapted to the students' cognitive development. According to Piaget, junior high school…

Schifter, Deborah; Bastable, Virginia; Russell, Susan Jo – National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2018

The "Reasoning Algebraically about Operations Casebook" was developed as the key resource for participants' Developing Mathematical Ideas seminar experience. The thirty-four cases, written by teachers describing real situations and actual student thinking in their classrooms, provide the basis of each session's investigation into the…

Poling, Lisa L.; Naresh, Nirmala; Goodson-Espy, Tracy – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2018

The authors explore how one teacher uses play and enacts the Effective Teaching Practices as a way to increase student engagement and autonomy and to meet learning goals when teaching mathematics with interactive simulations.

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…
