Drake, Corey; Land, Tonia J.; Bartell, Tonya Gau; Aguirre, Julia M.; Foote, Mary Q.; McDuffie, Amy Roth; Turner, Erin E. – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2015

Many teachers experience the tension between using published curriculum materials and teaching in ways that are responsive to children. Teachers are often expected to use a particular mathematics curriculum series, but they still want to be able to build on and connect to children's multiple mathematical knowledge bases (MMKB).…

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…

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…

Sluder, J. Brandon; Howard-Shaughnessy, Candice – Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, 2015

Cardiovascular fitness is an important aspect of overall fitness, health, and wellness, and running can be an excellent lifetime physical activity. One of the most simple and effective means of exercise, running raises heart rate in a short amount of time and can be done with little to no cost for equipment. There are many benefits to running,…

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…

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…

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…

Bass, Hyman, Ed.; Usiskin, Zalman, Ed.; Burrill, Gail, Ed. – National Academies Press, 2002

The Mathematical Sciences Education Board (MSEB) and the U.S. National Commission on Mathematics Instruction (USNCMI) took advantage of a unique opportunity to bring educators together. In August 2000, following the Ninth International Congress on Mathematics Education (ICME-9) in Makuhari, Japan, MSEB and USNCMI capitalized on the presence of…

Cross Francis, Dionne I.; Hudson, Rick A.; Lee, Mi Yeon; Rapacki, Lauren; Vesperman, Crystal Marie – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2014

Statistical literacy is essential in everyone's personal lives as consumers, citizens, and professionals. To make informed life and professional decisions, students are required to read, understand, and interpret vast amounts of information, much of which is quantitative. To develop statistical literacy so students are able to make sense of…

Sharp, Janet; Lutz, Tracie; LaLonde, Donna E. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2015

Cultures need to accurately record dates and times for various societal purposes, ranging from knowing when to plant crops to planning travel. In ancient times, the sun and moon were used as measurement devices because of the scientific understanding of the physical world at that time. Ancient timekeepers monitored celestial events and either used…

Suh, Jennifer; Moyer, Patricia S.; Heo, Hae-Ja – Journal of Interactive Online Learning, 2005

This paper describes a classroom teaching experiment conducted in three fifth-grade mathematics classrooms with students of different achievement levels. Virtual fraction manipulative concept tutorials were used in three one-hour class sessions to investigate the learning characteristics afforded by these technology tools. The virtual fraction…

Boudreaux, Grant; Beslin, Scott – Australian Senior Mathematics Journal, 2013

The purpose of this article is to examine one possible extension of greatest common divisor (or highest common factor) from elementary number properties. The article may be of interest to teachers and students of the "Australian Curriculum: Mathematics," beginning with Years 7 and 8, as described in the content descriptions for Number…
