Nabbout-Cheiban, Marie; Fisher, Forest; Edwards, Michael Todd – Mathematics Teacher, 2017

The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics envisions data analysis as a key component of K-grade 12 mathematics instruction with statistics introduced in the early grades. Nonetheless, deficiencies in statistical learning persist throughout elementary school and beyond. Too often, mathematics teachers lack the statistical knowledge for…

Bieda, Kristen N.; Huhn, Craig – Mathematics Teacher, 2017

Problem solving has long been a focus of research and curriculum reform (Kilpatrick 1985; Lester 1994; NCTM 1989, 2000; CCSSI 2010). The importance of problem solving is not new, but the Common Core introduced the idea of making sense of problems and persevering in solving them (CCSSI 2010, p. 6) as an aspect of problem solving. Perseverance is…

Taff, Jason – Mathematics Teacher, 2017

In this article, Jason Taff shares an approach that he presented to advanced seventh-grade prealgebra students. He begins by summarizing some of the shortcomings of equating the order of operations concept with the PEMDAS (often rendered mnemonically as "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally") procedure with the hope of helping teachers at…

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…

Richardson, Kerri; Reynolds, Anne; Schwartz, Catherine S. – Mathematics Teacher, 2012

The quadrilaterals problem is a particularly rich task, applicable to in-service teachers as well as to the students they teach. The ways in which students engage in this task, the strategies they use, and the mathematics that results align well with this "MT" Focus Issue on flexible mathematical thinking. The authors offer their observations of…

Suurtam, Christine – Mathematics Teacher, 2012

"Reasoning and sense making should occur in every classroom every day," states "Focus in High School Mathematics: Reasoning and Sense Making" (NCTM 2009, p. 5). As this book suggests, reasoning can take many forms, including explorations and conjectures as well as explanations and justifications of student thinking. Sense making, on the other…

Star, Jon R.; Kenyon, Martina; Joiner, Rebecca M.; Rittle-Johnson, Bethany – Mathematics Teacher, 2010

This article illustrates the use of comparison as an instructional approach that can help students develop and use a variety of problem-solving strategies and approaches in the mathematics classroom. Through comparison of solution strategies, students deliberately consider the similarities and differences among methods and how different strategies…
