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…

Thom, Jennifer S. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2011

This article presents a descriptive account of an after-school study. The participants--Allan (male, ten years), Veronique (female, nine years), and William (male, ten years)--all spoke English as their first language and were considered by their classroom teachers to be meeting the provincially set expectations for the fifth-grade curriculum…

Prasad, Priya V. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2016

How can we, as teachers, encourage students to move from drawing geometric objects to constructing them and thereby build their mathematical reasoning skills? One way to encourage students to construct instead of draw shapes and to help students develop more robust understandings of geometric relationships and constructions is to use interactive…

Kurz, Terri L.; Serrano, Alejandra – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2015

To support students' development of concepts in mathematics, the use of technology is often encouraged (Common Core State Standards Initiative [CCSSI] 2010). Technology can contextualize learning and provide a meaningful setting for mathematical ideas. Most teachers are supportive regarding the use of technology to encourage learning and…

Wiest, Lynda R.; Amankonah, Frank O.; Thomas, Troy A. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2011

Mathematics education is replete with activities that explore real-world problems. A variety of these problems are added to lessons in the belief that merely applying mathematics knowledge to everyday contexts will enhance the transfer of that knowledge to other settings. However, these contexts are hypothetical rather than authentic. This…

Woodward, John; Beckmann, Sybilla; Driscoll, Mark; Franke, Megan; Herzig, Patricia; Jitendra, Asha; Koedinger, Kenneth R.; Ogbuehi, Philip – What Works Clearinghouse, 2012

The Institute of Education Sciences (IES) publishes practice guides in education to bring the best available evidence and expertise to bear on current challenges in education. Authors of practice guides combine their expertise with the findings of rigorous research, when available, to develop specific recommendations for addressing these…

Greenes, Carole – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2014

Tasks to Advance the Learning of Mathematics (TALMs) were developed to stimulate grades 5-8 students' curiosity about complex mathematical relationships, inspire them to reason abstractly and quantitatively, encourage them to consider and create alternative solution approaches, develop their skills to persuade others about the viability of one…

Sherin, Miriam Gamoran; Linsenmeier, Katherine A.; van Es, Elizabeth A. – Journal of Teacher Education, 2009

This study explores the use of video clips from teachers' own classrooms as a resource for investigating student mathematical thinking. Three dimensions for characterizing video clips of student mathematical thinking are introduced: the extent to which a clip provides "windows" into student thinking, the "depth" of thinking…

Gersten, Russell; Beckmann, Sybilla; Clarke, Benjamin; Foegen, Anne; Marsh, Laurel; Star, Jon R.; Witzel, Bradley – What Works Clearinghouse, 2009

Students struggling with mathematics may benefit from early interventions aimed at improving their mathematics ability and ultimately preventing subsequent failure. This guide provides eight specific recommendations intended to help teachers, principals, and school administrators use Response to Intervention (RtI) to identify students who need…

McAllister, Deborah A.; McDonald, Shirley A.; Bothman, Susan M. – Online Submission, 2010

The activities contained in this document have been presented at several conference sessions. Participants engaged in hands-on activities for Grades 3 through 8 that utilized a deck of playing cards to meet mathematics content and process standards. Activities included variations of card games, but with a mathematical twist, and other card-based…

Clark, Julie – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2007

Many people believe that the 1989 National Council for Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards heralded the biggest mathematics reform of the 20th century. Despite all reform efforts, recent studies indicate that mathematics taught in primary and middle school mainly consists of basic arithmetic tasks that use memorization and repetition. Today…

Oberdorf, Christine; Taylor-Cox, Jennifer – Eye on Education, 2012

This book provides targeted mathematics instruction for every child. This book combines formative assessment with practical activities to differentiate the elementary classroom. The formative assessments include student work samples at varying levels. The authors: (1) Illustrate the distinction between a "traditional" assessment and an "enhanced"…

Clarke, Carne; Fisher, William; Marks, Rick; Ross, Sharon; Zbiek, Rose Mary – National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2010

This book focuses on essential knowledge for teachers about rational numbers. It is organized around four big ideas, supported by multiple smaller, interconnected ideas--essential understandings. Taking teachers beyond a simple introduction to rational numbers, the book will broaden and deepen their mathematical understanding of one of the most…

Rule, Audrey C., Ed.; Grueniger, Erika, Ed.; Hingre, Denise, Ed.; McKenna, Kyle, Ed.; Williams, Rebecca, Ed. – Online Submission, 2006

A study was conducted with forty-seven preservice childhood (elementary) education teachers (42 F, 5 M) enrolled in two mathematics methods classes taught by the same instructor to determine the effect of these college students making curriculum materials appropriate for upper elementary students on the preservice teachers' knowledge of…

Chiu, Mei-Shiu – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2009

This study investigated the approaches to teaching by three fifth-grade teachers' of creative and non-creative mathematical problems for fractions. The teachers' personal constructs of the two kinds of problems were elicited by interviews through the use of the repertory grid technique. All the teaching was observed and video-recorded. Results…
