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…

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…

Moore, Kimberly – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2018
Minecraft is an open world survival computer game that was originally created in Sweden in 2011 and later purchased by Microsoft┬« in 2014. It is among the most popular computer games with students of all ages because it gives players a sense of ownership and opportunities for creative exploration. The game has three unique features: (1) no clear…

Willingham, James C.; Strayer, Jeremy F.; Barlow, Angela T.; Lischka, Alyson E. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2018
Middle-grades teachers and students can have different perspectives on the value of discussing students' mathematical mistakes, despite various classroom evidence that such discussions can help foster strong conceptual understanding. Some teachers consider student mistakes to be an opportunity to correct errors in individual student thinking.…

Barlow, Angela T.; Gerstenschlager, Natasha E.; Strayer, Jeremy F.; Lischka, Alyson E.; Stephens, D. Christopher; Hartland, Kristin S.; Willingham, J. Christopher – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2018
This article begins by describing a class scenario in which a teacher gives her students the L problem (Watanabe 2008), which involves finding the area of a composite figure. Her students inappropriately extend the area formula for rectangles (A = L x W) to composite figures by multiplying all given dimensions. After class, the teacher concluded…

Lim, Kien H.; Wilson, Ashley D. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2018
More teachers are trying out the flipped classroom model in which content is delivered outside of class time, typically through online videos and "homework," and follow-up activities are done in class. This model frees up more class time for inquiry and discussion. This article focuses on the self-learning portion of the flipped learning…

Roy, George J.; Eli, Jennifer A.; Hendrix, Leslie; Graul, LuAnn – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2018
Students who are adept in modeling with mathematics have the capability to use mathematics in situations that arise in everyday life. The German Tank problem described in this article created the expectation that student reasoning was rooted in logical deductions (NCTM 2000). By engaging in this problem, students grappled with challenging…

Leonard, Alison E.; Bannister, Nicole A. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2018
Research suggests that embodying mathematical concepts through movement supports improvements in students' spatial fluency, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills (Alibali and Nathan 2012; Cone and Cone 2011; Sarama and Clements 2009). This article describes a dance-based strategy that middle school mathematics…
