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…

Bush, Sarah B.; Gibbons, Katie; Karp, Karen S.; Dillon, Fred – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2015

The phenomenon of outbreaks of dangerous diseases is both intriguing to students and of mathematical significance, which is exactly why the authors engaged eighth graders in an introductory activity on the growth that occurs as an epidemic spreads. Various contexts can set the stage for such an exploration. Reading adolescent literature like…

Roscoe, Matt B. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2016

Instead of reserving the study of probability and statistics for special fourth-year high school courses, the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) takes a "statistics for all" approach. The standards recommend that students in grades 6-8 learn to summarize and describe data distributions, understand probability, draw…

Loong, Esther Yook-Kin – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2011

This case study describes an "out of field" teacher's use of the Internet to teach a range of mathematical topics in a modified Year 8 mathematics class. It highlights the importance of three factors for implementing a discernible web-based teaching strategy: appropriate choice of web objects, effective "virtual" pedagogy, and technical support…

Knuth, Eric J.; Choppin, Jeffrey M.; Bieda, Kristen N. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2009

The goal of this article is to help teachers both recognize and capitalize on classroom opportunities so that students can be meaningfully engaged in mathematical proof. To do so, the authors discuss students' thoughts about proof and their abilities to construct arguments. They also offer suggestions for teachers that are intended to support…

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…

Schielack, Jane – National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 2010

This book describes and illustrates learning paths for the mathematical concepts and skills of each grade 8 Focal Point as presented in Curriculum Focal Points for Prekindergarten through Grade 8 Mathematics. It includes representational supports for teaching and learning that can facilitate understanding, stimulate productive discussions about…

Ejersbo, Lisser Rye; Leron, Uri – Mathematics Teaching, 2010

This article is concerned with the professional development of mathematics teachers. It starts with a need, identifies a problem, and suggests some ways of coping with the problem. The need is for teachers to develop mathematical communication and reflection skills in their practice. There is a widespread agreement that these skills are an…

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…

Ross, John A.; Xu, YunMei; Ford, John – School Science and Mathematics, 2008

Previous research (e.g., Woodward & Baxter, 1997) found that Standards-based mathematics teaching provides marginal or no benefits for low achievers, in contrast with positive effects for middle and high ability students. A randomized quasi-experiment in 52 Canadian schools found that low achieving grade 7 and 8 students who received support…

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…

Yopp, David A.; Ellsworth, Jacob L. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2016

Empirical arguments rely on examples without necessarily addressing all cases. Students should be skeptical of empirical evidence and should seek more secure arguments for generalizations, such as those that explain why a generalization is true for all cases. Generalizing on the basis of patterns in data is an important mathematical practice;…

Richardson, Sandra – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2009

This article describes experiences from a professional development project designed to prepare in-service eighth-grade mathematics teachers to develop, explore, and advance technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPCK) in the teaching and learning of Algebra I. This article describes the process of the participating teachers' mathematical…

Davis, Brent – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2015

For centuries, the basic operations of school mathematics have been identified as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Notably, these operations are "basic," not because they are foundational to mathematics knowledge, but because they were vital to a newly industrialized and market-driven economy several hundred years…
