Jung, Hyunyi – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2015
An important question for mathematics teachers is this: "How can we help students learn mathematics to solve everyday problems, rather than teaching them only to memorize rules and practice mathematical procedures?" Teaching students using modeling activities can help them learn mathematics in real-world problem-solving situations that…

Fitz, Margaret – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2016
This article focuses on the mathematical value of teaching angles through the use of sundials in the classroom. The history of sundials and the mathematics embedded within them is discussed in detail. In addition, practical applications of angles are included, along with interactive practice telling time with the angles created on sundials. Time…

Thomas, Amanda – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2017
Increasing availability of digital devices in elementary school classrooms presents exciting new opportunities for teachers to support the teaching and learning of mathematics. Although many of the math applications available for these devices focus on drill and practice of mathematical procedures, screencasting apps can help support effective…

Williams, Steven R.; Leatham, Keith R. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2017
We present the results of 2 studies, a citation-based study and an opinion-based study, that ranked the relative quality of 20 English-language journals that exclusively or extensively publish mathematics education research. We further disaggregate the opinion-based data to provide insights into variations in judgment of journal quality based on…

White, D.; Sullivan, E. – PRIMUS, 2018
Teaching teachers to participate in mathematical inquiry has the potential to both transform belief systems about mathematics and to transform teachers from consumers of mathematics to producers of mathematics. The focus of this paper is to describe the use of a problem, based on a non-traditional binary operation, to encourage and teach…

Allsopp, David; Lovin, LouAnn H.; van Ingen, Sarah – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2017
Special educators can play an essential role in the development of students' understanding of and capacity to do mathematics. Whether a special education teacher's goal is to help kindergartners develop counting skills or to support 10th graders in constructing geometric proofs and whether instruction will occur in co teaching, consulting, or…

Gates, Miriam; Cordner, Tracy; Kerins, Bowen; Cuoco, Al; Badertscher, Eden; Burrill, Gail – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
The Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice (CCSSI 2010) elevate the ways of thinking used to create mathematical results to the same level of importance as the results themselves. These mathematical habits of mind (MHoM), or "specialized ways of approaching mathematical problems and thinking about mathematical concepts that…

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…

Keazer, Lindsay; Gerberry, Carla – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2017
Imagine a mathematics classroom in which students engage in sharing ideas and reasoning through solutions to interesting mathematical problems. They are excited about mathematics and working on challenging problems that encourage collaboration and critical thinking. These are things that teachers want, but sometimes they do not know how to achieve…

Parker, Frieda; Bartell, Tonya Gau; Novak, Jodie D. – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2017
Research advances in teaching, learning, curriculum, and assessment have not changed the continued underperformance of marginalized students in mathematics education. Culturally responsive teaching is a means of addressing the needs of these students. It is sometimes challenging, however, to convince secondary mathematics teachers about the…

Walter, Hope A. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2018
Discourse in mathematics classrooms has been at the forefront of mathematics reform for years. Of the eight NCTM Mathematics Teaching Practices, four relate specifically to the use of discussion, questioning, and the analysis of student thinking that is based on discourse. As an answer to the demand for discourse within many mathematics classroom,…

Silver, Edward A., Ed.; Kenney, Patricia Ann, Ed. – National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2015
This book's 28 chapters are adapted and updated from articles published in NCTM's "Journal for Research in Mathematics Education" between 2000 and 2010. The authors have rewritten and revised their work to make it clear, understandable, and--most of all--useful for mathematics teachers today. To help teachers even more, these articles…
