Ponce, Gregorio A.; Tuba, Imre – Mathematics Teacher, 2015
New strategies can ignite teachers' imagination to create new lessons or adapt lessons created by others. In this article, the authors present the experience of an algebra teacher and his students solving linear and literal equations and explain how the use of ideas found in past NCTM journals helped bring this lesson to life. The…

Schifter, Deborah; Bastable, Virginia; Russell, Susan Jo – National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2016
The "Building a System of Tens Casebook" was developed as the key resource for participants' Developing Mathematical Ideas seminar experience. The thirty cases, written by teachers describing real situations and actual student thinking in their classrooms, provide the basis of each session's investigation of specific mathematical…

Sammons, Laney – ASCD, 2018
Students learning math are expected to do more than just solve problems; they must also be able to demonstrate their thinking and share their ideas, both orally and in writing. As many classroom teachers have discovered, these can be challenging tasks for students. The good news is, mathematical communication can be taught and mastered. In…

Bouck, Emily C.; Working, Christopher; Bone, Erin – Intervention in School and Clinic, 2018
Understanding mathematical concepts is important for all students, although often challenging for many students with disabilities. Historically, educators have used concrete manipulatives to support and build conceptual understanding. Mobile devices provide a valuable option to support students with disabilities in mathematics through app-based…

Zazkis, Rina; Mamolo, Ami – For the Learning of Mathematics, 2011
This article extends the notion of "knowledge at the mathematical horizon" or "horizon knowledge" introduced by Ball and colleagues as a part of teachers' subject matter knowledge. Our focus is on teachers' mathematical knowledge beyond the school curriculum, that is, on mathematics learnt during undergraduate college or university studies. We…

Louisiana Department of Education, 2013
This module assumes that the information presented in previous modules is well known to the learner. Module 4 is the first of three modules (4, 5, and 6) designed to provide an in-depth look at the Standards of Mathematical Practice which are part of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. Module 4 focuses on developing an initial…

Nuhrenborger, Marcus; Steinbring, Heinz – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2009
The study presented in this article investigates forms of "mathematical" interaction in different social settings. One major interest is to better understand mathematics teachers' joint professional discourse while observing and analysing young students mathematical interaction followed by teacher's intervention. The teachers' joint professional…

Bowers, Janet S.; Stephens, Becky – Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education, 2011
The technological revolution that has finally permeated K-12 education has direct implications for modern teacher educators whose "Hippocratic oath" is to best prepare future teachers for twenty-first-century classrooms. The goal of this article is to suggest that the heart of sound technological implementation is to encourage students to use…

Hilton, Annette; Hilton, Geoff – Teaching Science, 2016
In many scientific contexts, students need to be able to use mathematical knowledge in order to engage in scientific reasoning and problem-solving, and their understanding of scientific concepts relies heavily on their ability to understand and use mathematics in often new or unfamiliar contexts. Not only do science students need high levels of…

Sriraman, Bharath, Ed. – IAP - Information Age Publishing, Inc., 2012
The interaction of the history of mathematics and mathematics education has long been construed as an esoteric area of inquiry. Much of the research done in this realm has been under the auspices of the history and pedagogy of mathematics group. However there is little systematization or consolidation of the existing literature aimed at…
