Zhao, Manqian; Lapuk, Karen – Mathematics Teacher, 2019

According to the National Center for Education Statistics (2016), the number of public school students in the United States who were English learners (ELs) was estimated at 4.5 million. However, in 2005, the national standardized testing scores (Fry 2007) show that about 51 percent of eighth-grade EL students were behind other students in reading…

Eichhorn, Melinda S.; DiMauro, Peter J.; Lacson, Courtney; Dennie, Barbara – Mathematics Teacher, 2019

One of the most important roles of a teacher is to create a safe space for learners, consistent with the Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST) Universal Design for Learning guidelines (CAST 2011). Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework for teaching and learning, based on neuroscience research, that guides teachers to eliminate…

Ptak, Karine S. – Mathematics Teacher, 2019

During the 2013-2014 school year, the Maryland State High School Assessment in Algebra with Data Analysis (HSA) was a requirement for high school graduation in Maryland. At Frederick High School, only 27 percent of students who took the test that year passed. To respond to such an alarming failure rate, three teachers and the author developed and…

Henderson, Christie – Mathematics Teacher, 2019

Embedding mathematics in a relatable context has changed the way Christie Henderson's elementary students view the subject. In this article, Henderson discusses how presenting mathematics through a relatable context enables students to visualize the math and make a pictorial representation to aid them in solving it. When relevant and relatable…

Frank, Isaac – Mathematics Teacher, 2019

In this brief article, the author illustrates the flaws of FOIL (multiply the First, Outer, Inner, and Last terms of two binomials) and introduces the box method. Much like FOIL, the box method can become easy to use. Unlike FOIL, however, the box method is a more direct and visible link to using the distributive property to determine area, a…
