Shen, Zhuping – Mathematics Teacher, 2018
Finding intersections, unions, and complements of sets is an essential issue in elementary mathematics. It builds the foundation for set theory, probability, logic, and other topics. It is commonly recognized that drawing a Venn diagram, which was first introduced by the British philosopher and mathematician John Venn in 1881, is a classic and…

Lo, Chung Kwan – Mathematics Teacher, 2017
There is a growing interest in using a flipped classroom format in day-to-day teaching. Direct computer-based individual instruction outside the classroom and interactive group learning activities inside the classroom are the two essential components of the flipped classroom model. By watching instructional videos, students can work through some…

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…

Gurl, Theresa J.; Fox, Ryan; Dabovic, Nikolina; Leavitt, Arielle Eager – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
The implementation of the Common Core's Standards for Mathematical Practice can pose a challenge to all teachers of mathematics but especially to preservice teachers. These standards require teaching in a way that often differs from what preservice teachers have experienced as learners. Standard 1--"Make sense of problems and persevere in…

Szydlik, Jennifer Earles – Mathematics Teacher, 2015
Classroom culture is established through both conversations and practices. Traditionally in mathematics class, the focus is primarily on the latter; that is, students are shown what "doing mathematics" looks like, and then asked that they try it themselves. This article discusses three mathematical conversations that help bring…

Kurz, Terri L.; Garcia, Jorge – Mathematics Teacher, 2015
Since the 1950s, the understanding of how the base 10 system works has been encouraged through alternative base systems (Price 1995; Woodward 2004). If high school students are given opportunities to learn other base systems and analyze what they denote, we believe that they will better understand the structure of base 10 and its operations…

Manizade, Agida G.; Mason, Marguerite M. – Mathematics Teacher, 2014
A mathematics classroom that reflects the vision of NCTM's "Principles and Standards for School Mathematics" will have the teacher posing problems, asking questions that build on students' thinking, and encouraging students to explore different solutions. In teaching about area, it is not sufficient to give students the…

Jacobson, Erik – Mathematics Teacher, 2014
For many students, making connections between mathematical ideas and the real world is one of the most intriguing and rewarding aspects of the study of mathematics. In the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSI 2010), mathematical modeling is highlighted as a mathematical practice standard for all grades. To engage in mathematical…

Wasserman, Nicholas H. – Mathematics Teacher, 2014
Today, the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSI 2010) expect students in as early as eighth grade to be knowledgeable about irrational numbers. Yet a common tendency in classrooms and on standardized tests is to avoid rational and irrational solutions to problems in favor of integer solutions, which are easier for students to…

Colton, Connie; Smith, Wendy M. – Mathematics Teacher, 2014
The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSI 2010) asks students in as early as fourth grade to solve word problems using equations with variables. Equations studied at this level generate a single solution, such as the equation x + 10 = 25. For students in fifth grade, the Common Core standard for algebraic thinking expects them to…

Linsenmeier, Katherine A.; Sherin, Miriam; Walkoe, Janet; Mulligan, Martha – Mathematics Teacher, 2014
The authors present three strategies for making sense of students' mathematical thinking. These lenses make the abstract idea of "making sense of student thinking" more manageable and concrete. We start by taking an initial look at a student's idea, going deeper, and finally looking across several ideas.

Moore, Amanda J.; Gillett, Matthew R.; Steele, Michael D. – Mathematics Teacher, 2014
The Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice (CCSSI 2010) and NCTM's "Focus in High School Mathematics: Reasoning and Sense Making" (2009) present a vision of high school classrooms in which the majority of the activity involves students working on rich mathematical problems and engaging in mathematical discourse. This model…

Beigie, Darin – Mathematics Teacher, 2014
Most people who are attracted to STEM-related fields are drawn not by a desire to take mathematics tests but to create things. The opportunity to create an algebra drawing gives students a sense of ownership and adventure that taps into the same sort of energy that leads a young person to get lost in reading a good book, building with Legos®,…

Berger, Lisa – Mathematics Teacher, 2013
Must two triangles with equal areas and equal perimeters also be congruent? This question was introduced in "Mathematics Teacher" ("MT")by Rosenberg, Spillane, and Wulf in their article "Heron Triangles and Moduli Spaces" (2008), which also described the authors' subsequent investigation of a particular moduli…
