Case, Catherine; Whitaker, Douglas – Mathematics Teacher, 2016

In the criminal justice system, defendants accused of a crime are presumed innocent until proven guilty. Statistical inference in any context is built on an analogous principle: The null hypothesis--often a hypothesis of "no difference" or "no effect"--is presumed true unless there is sufficient evidence against it. In this…

Hardy, Michael D. – Mathematics Teacher, 2014

Unit conversion need not be boring. If students see that the skill is necessary, both their motivation to learn and their appreciation of the process can be enhanced. As a result, students become actively engaged and construct understanding and computational skills that they will retain over time. The activity described here makes use of scale…

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…

Raje, Sonali; Krach, Michael; Kaplan, Gail – Mathematics Teacher, 2013

Concepts in mathematics are often universally applicable to other fields. A critical aspect for success in high school or college is the ability to transfer content knowledge from one discipline to another. This is especially true for material learned in the sciences and mathematics. Several studies have suggested that strong mathematical skills…
