Özgün-Koca, S. Asli – Mathematics Teacher, 2016

The Common Core State Standards (CCSSI 2010) and NCTM's (2014) "Principles to Actions" agree that "for meaningful learning of mathematics, tools and technology must be indispensable features of the classroom . . . that support students in exploring mathematics as well as in making sense of concepts and procedures and engaging in…

Tabor, Catherine – Mathematics Teacher, 2014

Inclusion and differentiation--hallmarks of the current educational system--require a paradigm shift in the way that educators run their classrooms. This article enumerates the need for techno-kinesthetic, visually based activities and offers an example of a calculator-based programming activity that addresses that need. After discussing the use…

Switzer, J. Matt – Mathematics Teacher, 2014

Students often have difficulty with graphing inequalities (see Filloy, Rojano, and Rubio 2002; Drijvers 2002), and J. Matt Switzer's students were no exception. Although students can produce graphs for simple inequalities, they often struggle when the format of the inequality is unfamiliar. Even when producing a correct graph of an…

Kirwan, J. Vince; Tobias, Jennifer M. – Mathematics Teacher, 2014

To understand multiple representations in algebra, students must be able to describe relationships through a variety of formats, such as graphs, tables, pictures, and equations. NCTM indicates that varied representations are "essential elements in supporting students' understanding of mathematical concepts and relationships" (NCTM…

Landers, Mara G. – Mathematics Teacher, 2013

In this article, the author describes the development and implementation of a measurement-based group activity designed to support students in understanding the connection between angle magnitude and the shape of the sine function. She explains that the benefit of this activity is that it allows students to build their trigonometric knowledge…

Jones, Steven R. – Mathematics Teacher, 2013

Calculus instruction is an important topic for high school and college teachers alike. A prime target for attention is integration, which, unfortunately, students too often treat as a rote procedure. Understanding the integral better will support students' application of their mathematical knowledge to science, technology, and engineering…

Nagle, Courtney R.; Moore-Russo, Deborah – Mathematics Teacher, 2013

All teachers, especially high school teachers, face the challenge of ensuring that students have opportunities to relate and connect the various representations and notions of mathematics concepts developed over the course of the pre-K-12 mathematics curriculum. NCTM's (2000) Representation Standard emphasizes the importance of students being…

Parker, Dennis – Mathematics Teacher, 2005

A problem sometimes called Moser's circle problem where a circular region has to be partitioned with chords without any three chords intersecting at one point, is discussed. It is shown that Moser's circle problem makes the students to use a variety of mathematical tools to find correct solutions to problems and gives an opportunity to think about…
