Larson, Matthew R.; Leinwand, Steven – Mathematics Teacher, 2013
Educators in forty-five states and the District of Columbia are hard at work interpreting and implementing the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) (CCSSI 2010). This work typically involves teacher participation in professional development activities focused on developing an understanding of the content standards as well as the…

D'Ambrosio, Beatriz S.; Kastberg, Signe E.; Viola dos Santos, Joao Ricardo – Mathematics Teacher, 2010
Many mathematics teachers struggle to support their students' developing understanding of proof as an essential element in investigations of mathematics. The area of mathematics where the development of an understanding of proof is most challenging is algebra. In the case of algebraic proof, analysis of student written work on tasks that demand…

Carpenter, Thomas P.; And Others – Mathematics Teacher, 1983
Results from the third national mathematics assessment indicate that the decline in performance of 17 year olds between 1973 and 1978 has leveled out over the last four years, and 13 year olds' performance improved significantly between 1978 and 1982. However, most gains were on lower-order skills. (MNS)

Silver, Edward A.; And Others – Mathematics Teacher, 1988
Discussed are trends in performance across the last three National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) mathematics assessments for students in grades 7 and 11, and reports on indicators of instructional activity. The results suggest that achievement in mathematics has taken a modest upturn in the 1980s. (MNS)

Shaughnessy, J. Michael; Zawojewski, Judith S. – Mathematics Teacher, 1999
Discusses the results of the 1996 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) of secondary school students on probability and statistics. The most recent results indicate that more attention is being given to data analysis, statistics, and probability, and that student performance on these items is gradually improving compared to the 1990…

Blume, Glendon W.; Zawojewski, Judith S.; Silver, Edward A.; Kenney, Patricia Ann – Mathematics Teacher, 1998
Illustrates how engagement in worthwhile mathematical tasks can provide rich opportunities for professional development. Presents different solution strategies for the effective tax rate problem. Emphasizes that, to help students recognize differences among the preceding arguments, teachers need to recognize reasoning based on part-whole…

Brown, Catherine A.; And Others – Mathematics Teacher, 1988
Suggests that secondary school students seem to have reasonably good procedural knowledge in areas of mathematics as rational numbers, probability, measurement, and data organization and interpretation. It appears, however, that students are lacking the conceptual knowledge enabling them to successfully do the assessment items on applications,…

Carpenter, Thomas P.; And Others – Mathematics Teacher, 1981
Results of the second mathematics assessment of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) are analyzed with regard to the performance of 13- and 17-year-olds on probability exercises. The results suggest that this area has been neglected in mathematics instruction. (MP)
