Rumsey, Chepina; Guarino, Jody; Gildea, Rachael; Cho, Christina Y.; Lockhart, Bethany – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019

Early career K-grade 2 teachers in a yearlong project explored discourse and mathematical argumentation through monthly professional development (PD) sessions. The goal of the project was to develop an understanding of the types of K-grade 2 tasks that promote argumentation, the types of discourse and argumentation that K-grade 2 students engage…

Kuehnert, Eloise R. A.; Eddy, Colleen M.; Miller, Daphyne; Pratt, Sarah S.; Senawongsa, Chanika – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018

In this article, the authors describe the Japanese term "bansho," which refers to the intentional use of board space for facilitating student learning. Bansho offers a structure for sequencing mathematics visually on the board. By purposefully organizing the board space alongside the lesson, teachers can provide students with a framework…

Brickwedde, James – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018

This article examines the importance of developing the notion of place value as a rate of ten. In exploring how to nurture this concept, the author looks at the role of the language of value, the problem types of multistep multiplication and addition along with measurement division, each with ten as an organizing unit, as well as strategically…

Whitacre, Ian; Schoen, Robert C.; Champagne, Zachary; Goddard, Andrea – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2017

Data (Schoen et al. 2016) suggests that because many students' understanding of subtraction is limited by thinking about the operation only as take-away or by using a default procedure, such as the standard subtraction algorithm in the United States, second graders are much more likely to solve 100 minus 3 correctly than 201 minus 199. This…

Gresham, Gina; Shannon, Tracy – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2017

Mathematics discourse is a teaching approach that encourages student discussion and reveals an understanding of concepts as students engage in mathematical reasoning and debate (Cobb 2006). Grabowski and Ke (2007) posit that students have significantly higher achievement and positive attitudes toward mathematics after participating in gaming…

Bates, Meg S.; Moran, Cheryl G.; Phalen, Lena – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2017

Teachers face many challenges helping students meet the expectations set forth in the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) (CCSSI 2010). CCSSM content standards not only introduce new concepts at each grade level but also require teachers to learn new terminology for old concepts and consider how students' understanding of concepts…

Murata, Aki; Stewart, Chana – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2017

Effective use of mathematical representation is key to supporting student learning. In "Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All" (NCTM 2014), "use and connect mathematical representations" is one of the effective Mathematics Teaching Practices. By using different representations, students examine concepts…

Brendefur, Jonathan L.; Strother, Sam; Rich, Kelli; Appleton, Sarah – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2016

Teachers use the word assessment to describe any method of gathering information about student learning. Whether it be formative assessment (intended to guide instructional decisions) or summative assessment (a reflection on the entirety of student learning from prior instruction), teachers are constantly working to identify what their students…

Wickstrom, Megan H.; Jurczak, Lindsay M. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2016

In this article, the authors describe how their first-grade class used the book "Inch by Inch" (Lionni 1960)--the story of an inchworm that escapes from a hungry robin by proving he is useful for measuring--as inspiration for a lesson focused on exploring length measurement through examining the meaning of an inch. The authors designed a…

Looney, Susan; Carr, Kristen – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2016

A first-grade teacher has students use their hands and fingers to engage in and develop understanding of counting, to combine groups to facilitate counting by fives and tens, and to describe their findings using words and equations.

Donoahue, Zoe – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2016

During the author's everyday math discussions with her class, young children talk about mathematical ideas, theories, and concepts within a predictable structure. These discussions include many concepts from--and beyond--the first-grade math curriculum, and their depth and complexity build throughout the school year. Concepts and skills include…

Schaen, Richard J.; Hayden, Garry; Zydney, Janet M. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2016

The best Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) design challenges are student centered, with students themselves making the key decisions. But with young children who are still learning basic academic and social skills, implementing projects where they truly take the lead can be quite challenging. To give students at one…

Markworth, Kimberly A. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2016

A "repeating pattern" is a cyclical repetition of an identifiable core. Children in the primary grades usually begin pattern work with fairly simple patterns, such as AB, ABC, or ABB patterns. The unique letters represent unique elements, whereas the sequence of letters represents the core that is repeated. Based on color, shape,…

Hefty, Lukas J. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2015

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics' (NCTM's) "Principles and Standards for School Mathematics" (2000) outlines fi ve Process Standards that are essential for developing deep understanding of mathematics: (1) Problem Solving; (2) Reasoning and Proof; (3) Communication; (4) Connections; and (5) Representation. The Common Core…

Wickstrom, Megan H. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2014

Any of the key concepts that students need to know about area measurement are covered in the third-grade expectations detailed in the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) (CCSSI 2010). However, making sense of area measurement is not always an easy task for students; it takes time. Researchers have found that young children often…
